Read Poem by Lauren Lindsey

You said you were worried
I wouldn’t like you
if you were truly yourself

That I wouldn’t be able
to handle you
If you really let go

But I say to you:

Unfurl yourself in me

unleash your fragrance and
spread wide your petals

as if I am the moon
and you are a nightflower

Release your billowing waves
and crash over me

Then drag part of me back with you
So I will always be soaking

Root yourself
Deep down in me
So I am the
Soil you thirst upon

For my love you have no Idea

how long
I have been
