My Love Has No Fear

I am not afraid of
my naked vulnerabilities or
society’s foolish expectations

or the ridicule in their eyes

or the tears in my own
as I pour myself out into your hands
and listen to your beautiful mouth speak

because my love has no fear and I want to
savor and experience everything about you

while we dance profusely upon the things
which have made you suffer

and I see that indomitable affection in your smile
that tells me it was all worth it
