What We Never Learned

The idea of impossibility frightens you?
When flesh on flesh intimacy conforms to the idea of love. 
The intimacies it ceases to shatter. 
It is in the rebellious
the physical act
of two bodies together
that leaves us incapable of love.
It is the burning flesh
which we desire in wants
not needs
that destroys finite dimensions of commitment and faith.

It is not in whether we truly trust someone
to let caress and bury deep within. 
It is only in the act of giving
that we get.
It is nothing but the unison
of the naked truth.
No masks
no secrets hidden underneath the subtleties of passion
as we never learned it.
