On Being "Open"

You design a future where I am present
and I find that I have never felt
so fascinated with a person so forthright
You talk of feeling like fact,
instead of a proof of concept.
I am shocked and somewhat aphrehensive,
But also terribly amused

Worst is knowing that
you may operate without intention
To say something is to be laid bare
To admit to the mouth of desire.
Do you live there? Between its teeth? Under its tongue?

Do you understand the meaning behind the words?
Do you realize the amount of times you have said,
"I love you"
"You're important to me"
"I feel safe with you"
Without saying the words?
