Freedom

Capture my heart
Take hold of it; grasp it
Grasp me

Tightly like you would hold onto a
child who has been snatched
out of the path of a speeding car
Closely like you would cradle
a broken baby bird
As reverently as you would cup
in your palm
a most precious object

Capture my heart, capture me
Bind me this place, this life
Secure me to the earth, to you

Freedom is overrated;
Love is not.

  1. Interesting that you use the word grasp. I feel like freedom is opposing grasping.

    • It is, and I wanted it to be. I just read something somewhere that having complete freedom means being alone.

      I wanted to convey the opposite — by allowing yourself to be captured, to be ‘grasped’, yes, you’re giving up that freedom, but that’s okay, it sounded better than it actually is.

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
