love for self

love for self by shan bae

to feel you is to love you
to peel back every layer for more 
embracing the tears in my eyes filled to the brim
my cupped eyelids; they flow over
puckering at the acidity in our passion
finding pleasure in the chemical reactions
i am not afraid of onions
i am intrigued by what makes you raw
i will not apprehend the many ploys in which I would find myself spiraling into a dark hole
love I do not fear you
love I am afraid, no more
