love as a pilgrimage [poem]

when I tell you I love you
it is the holiest truth I can give voice to
know that this heart is a cavernous temple
too dangerous to traverse
and those words are your guide
to the only safe passageway into me
and you will enter at your own risk
I cannot save you from the darkness
the unseen traps
the terrifying silence that seems almost alive
you won’t enter this sacred ruin
and return home unchanged
the journey will change you
whether you like it or not
if you value your ignorance
your agnostic outlook on life and love
shut your ears to these divine words
do not love me
turn around
run
and never look back
