you


you turn me away 
because you say 
i might be dangerous. 
i do not beg you 
to change your mind. 
i cannot expect you 
to not be scared. 
but. 
if 
you close your eyes 
and ask to see 
true beauty,
it will come to you 
in the form
    of my hand 
inside of yours. 
it will come to you 
through 
whispered blood
and sinew 
that moves in 
your body now 
but started 
long ago 
in mine.
