Christine Ray – Falling up into the eye

Brave & Reckless

I stand before you
more naked
more stripped down
than I have ever been
I have always thought
falling in love
would be a gentle
drop backwards
gracefully landing
into piles of autumn leaves
freshly fallen snow
but this is mad
free-fall tumbling
I no longer know
up from down
worried about a crash
my heart beats
like a wild thing
as you free yourself
from the rest of your clothes
no armor
left between us
we are revealed
equal parts desire
after an eternity
you step in
and hold my face
I am feeling
emotions I have
no language for
you are the
eye of this hurricane
calm in the center
of this storm
capable of holding
us steady
during this crazy ride
I am reminded
of everything
that has brought us here
to this moment
it is grounding
