Lay it Down.

lay it down

Lay down your words like a summer rain storm, thunder and lightning; skies flashing, on the parched dry earth

Lay down your fears; your insecurities, like your favorite worn t-shirt, thrown haphazardly on the cold morning floor

Lay down your misconceptions; your mistakes like bulbs, deep into the cold Spring ground

Lay it all down, around me like fallen stars on the darkest of nights

Lay it down and take it all off; we will cast them across the sea like 1000 skipping stones, making wishes on each one as it floats to the cool, sandy bottom

Lay your truth on me, as a warm blanket, around the winter fire

Because the past never mattered to the present

Lay down your incandescent whispers, like the breeze across my soft, bare skin

Lay down your aching desires to my body like an oak-aged Pinot Noir, ripe with intention; with aged wisdom

Lay down your thoughts into my flowing hair, like a field of dandelions blown suddenly into the midnight wind

Lay down your hands upon me as you unwrap Christmas morning; skillfully unwrapping me from all that I was, all that I am, to stand here before you in this moment

Lay down your fingertips on my body tracing the intentions of 1000 dreams

Lay down your body against mine, with the knowledge of yesterday, the reality of today and the hope of tomorrow

Just lay it all down.
