What If?

What if I avow my love
breaking the shields,
detesting the apprehensions,
liberating from presumed bondages
to dissolve in your hazy occult

What if I become a rebel
stripping away the inhibitions
detesting the social charade
abutting the dogmatic stares
to announce my blistering desires

What if I break the mold
escaping the impeding barriers
fracturing the virtuous cage
smacking the ostensible bonds
to be with you

And if I defy the world
and leave the sanity behind
will you show courage
to walk with me
away from the desultory world

  1. Beautiful.What if I bare my heart open for you see and see those scars I’m hiding within.

    These ending lines are my favorite. A lover’s desire.

    “And if I defy the world
    and leave the sanity behind
    will you show courage
    to walk with me
    away from the desultory world”. This is a beautiful piece of poetry.
