So, what is passion?
Is it in part an intellectual connection?
Is it wanting to get to know you at the deepest level
So that I know what makes you tick
How you will react
What will make your side split with laughter
Or cause your anger to burn?
Is it a focused attempt
To continually peel back the proverbial onion
Until our masks disappear
When all I can see is you
And you me
Just as we are
Is that it?
Or is it more emotional than that?
I have a very strong urge
To know what moves your heart
To know what you long for
How you’ll respond in a certain situation
Or how you’ll drink in the beauty and fragrance
Of a deeply forested canyon
Or a bubbling spring
Is it experiential
Perhaps a matter of time and due course?
We’ve had our time together
Experienced so many fun and deep and happy moments
That I really know the woman inside
And you’ve become a part of my inner circle
How much of it has to do with touch?
Is the fact that I don’t want to let go of your hand
That I want to always be connected to you
Is that what passion is?
Perhaps it’s defined by how playful we are
In the way
Like the time I pulled away from your lips
And friskily slid the tip of my tongue
Inside your shocked nostril
And just waited for your reaction
Is it a willingness to take risks? To let go of all pretenses
And just allow life to happen
The ability to trust and go
Wherever our bodies take us
Or is passion best defined as something more primal?
The animal-like impulse to pursue my prey
Doing whatever it takes to chase you down
Overpower you, make you my own
Is it the fact that one day
Come hell or high water
I will catch you
And discard the last remnant of your resistance
I will take your body in hand
And my tongue and my tool
Will simply drive home to where they belong
Into the deep recesses of your mouth, of your sex
I will make your body scream
As you completely lose control of your will
With feelings of ecstasy, of pure pleasure
As I capture your heart, mind, soul and body
What is passion?
Is this really what it is
What is described here?
I think it is
It’s all of the above
That’s what passion is
And my passion burns red hot
