I Surrender All to You

by Monie T. Jackson

My insides, attacked with nervous energy
And perhaps even some apprehension
I knew once you were close to me
I would lose all inhibitions
And that I feared, I tried not to
allow my heart to surrender to you
But when your lips touched mine
That was all I could do
It was over for me
My heart no longer felt as it was my own
It gave up willingly
Kidnapped by your charm, your warmth
And willing and ready to be
Captured by the likes of you.
From the moment I met you
Thoughts of your kiss, your touch
Your smell, and every cell that 
Makes you – you
Encompassed and embraced every
Cell of what makes me – me
In my heart of hearts, my soul
Spoke to me
Telling me – yes – this is where
I am supposed to be.
In no time, I was thoroughly
Convinced that I had to have you
With me
Around me
Inside of me
Loving me
Giving it all to me.
For a second I wanted to send you out 
That front door
Don’t let passion make a fool of you
Don’t let the touch of his warm
Flesh – weaken you.
Hold on to your love
But soon that second had passed
The walls that secured me
Had fallen so fast.
For my own survival
I had to let you in.
I surrender all to you
