Carnival of Wants

I want to light you up

from soul to sole,

like a Tilt-a-Whirl,

until you know exactly how this love

feels banging around my insides.

I want to free you up

from doubt,

like a Cotton Candy swirl,

until you know exactly how this hope

feels sticky-sweet, complete.

I want to bowl you over

from head to heel,

like a Ferris Wheel,

until you know exactly how this fear

feels a little fun tilting over me.

I want to fill you full

of laughter and cheer

like a silly, slow Teacup ride,

until you know exactly how to slide

our rich lives closer entwined.

I want to read you complete

from cover to cover,

like a carnival adventure novella,

until we can keep the joy written 

twirling in lights

between you and me.
