Doodley,
"Acquiesce"
"This here, my Heart I give this to thee,"
This is the essence of our humanity. The heart is truly our greatest power.
A brave and gutsy move, to give the heart to another. Not a small thing we do.
As you say; "For its all of me." I totally see the meaning and gamble. We people want to love and be loved and will always take the risk. Great meaning in your poem.
Blessings,
Kathy

Wow. The words smell of truth and sweetness...and the fragrance perfumes this page. The ones reading can smell the scent your 'short, but sweet' piece carries...I can smell it, too. I so very agree with you. Expressing our love can surely be a tough task. But it's always better to gather a little bit of courage and speak your heart out rather than regretting the entire life for not taking the chance. Loved it...as always

These 4 lines are full of life and love.

How very words few,
all but they talk to you..

As they say, Love is not for the coward. It takes a mighty courage to love and not expect it back.
Thanks for sharing!

Now this is a short but, sweet four line gem. Anyone that writes about love knows more about the subject than the average Tom, Melanie or confused homo-phobe. To give ones all to another and to hold nothing back is risk supreme. This poem denotes exactly that, risk supreme.

Short, and indeed sweet. This shows the beauty of the topic: something so small can mean so much and be so monumental.

Reminds me of something that would have been published in "Book of Longing" By Leonard Cohen.
Love it.
