on having fallen
(c) 2012 by margaux delotte-bennett

 

i have fallen for you
like one falls for a live elephant
the first time one lays eyes on its majestic beauty in the flesh

it is a love of possession

a hunger to hold
what must be free

a need to make the larger than life
small enough to fit
into the four chambers of the heart

a desire to keep the gentle
and world wised eyes
locked on this face
alone

and yet
the knowledge that keeps one from forsaking all rationality

from throwing caution to the wind

and consummating one’s
amorous intentions with the unsuspecting pachyderm

also keeps
me
from fully falling
for you
