Consummate Love

by Shanna Rene 8 months ago in love poems
Report Story

A lens toward redefining love.

I do not seek all-consuming love

For I do not wish to be consumed

To be consumed is predation

And I am not a meal

This definition of love

A patriarchal distortion

Of which I choose to liberate

For these distortions do not hold me

But weigh, like chains

Slipped on in the night

I seek first the comfort of me

To consummate with my wild woman

One day, a synergy will be felt

Born on the wings of autonomy

And mutual commitment

Created in service of higher ideals

To completing ourself

Sharing in parallel journey

Vision carriers of inward longings
