Loving: A Poem

How dare you climb up
into my soul,
find a small, dark corner
to light a fire in
and warm my lungs?

How dare you bring the stars
down to my feet
and watch my eyes light up
as they dance for us
and nobody else?

How dare you take any
and every
ounce of doubt in my mind,
tie it around your finger
and let it go into the water
as it sinks
and hundreds of colors
leaking from the sunset
pretend it never happened?

What kind
of savage
are you?
