The energy has shifted,
my defences down,
revealing something of my true self.
I am alive when I think of you,
yearning to lay beside you,
listen to the story of your life,
soothed by the lilt of your voice,
transfixed by those amber eyes,
lifted by the strength emanating from you,
protected in a way I have never known before.
You still and awaken me
I am left powerless,
the allure enveloping,
the endearment of your quiet vulnerability
It is only a matter of time
and I no longer wish to run.
