I Dare You

I dare you to move.
Plunge into my love and I will not resist nor will I stop you from swimming the depths of me. I will hand you the freedom to bathe in my warmth but be careful not to drown. For my love can be still as water or can come in waves.

I dare you to touch.
Wrap me in your arms and I will not fight back. I will build no solid wall so that our souls can stare right into each other and that our touch can reach beyond the skin. But do not attempt to own me for I belong to no man.

I dare you to fall.
If, by this time, you have swum my depths without drowning and you have touched this soul without owning, I dare you. There is a reason I keep a warning sign to this heart. Proceed at your own risk— you have been warned.

First off, happy 26th year of marriage to Victoria and her husband. I wish you more anything-but-ordinary days in the future.  I originally have nothing for MtB but my friend and seatmate kept on singing the line, “I dare you to move…”, from Switchfoot’s  song. So here goes something… 🙂
