The Performer

Audre Lorde

I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't.

I want...

I have been sitting here
Listening to me
Listening to what my heart wants
Listening to the light whisper good evening to the dark
Listening to a heartbeat that responds to every thought of you

I'm still here
And all this time
I wanted to write something beautiful
A gift for you tonight

And I cannot keep my tears away
Because writing about Love, writing about YOU...
Is just a tender piece of me

I want to tell you that I love you
Because I mean it
The flowers will always come
And when they don't my Love
I will still be here
I want to date you...but it does not matter
I already am in love with you

I want to tell you that you are beautiful Both in the inside and out
I haven't met one that possesses both beauties

I want to sit and support your behind
Give you a good shoulder and back rub
Make you feel alright
And as always you'll
Respond to my touch and make me shudder
Remind me of our private moments together

I want to cook one romantic dinner, just for you...
And feed you after that
To toast to a glass of water, not wine

I want to make time for you
Because it is most valuable to me
The wonderful times to eternal sleep, I will take with me

I want us to do what we love most
What we share much in common
What brought us together

I want to encourage you to reach for your stars Honey!
Help you in any way I can to go for it
Because what is merry for you is merrier for me

I want to listen to you
Not just with my ears but with my heart too!
I want to follow each word I say with appropriate action
I want to give you space when you need it...
I want to talk to you as often as possible

Above all else...
This comes to say that I still want you!
As bad as I always have

This comes to say
That your love is here to stay!
