if i may (this heart is yours to keep)

if i may darling
call you this
name so sweet
then these hands
are for holding
your breath
and these legs carry
your weight shoulders
broad like bridges over
these ribs are cage enough to
only your voice keys the lock
and these eyes, these eyes
that you look deeply in
to nothing and everything
i,m-possibility not question
these eyes are yours to be
(hold) and see what lovers have always seen,
and this mouth is to kiss you
sweetwords that melt like
candles onto table
these ears yours for nibbles,

i know a secret in your eyes
that says men who love
tell no lies
