Love Me Like You Do

Like I’ve said before, I probably haven’t had the opportunity to watch any of the movies in the Fifty Shades of Grey series because it’s banned here. Please read the disclaimer below. It’s imperative for a poem inspired by such a controversial series! Most of my Indian friends may not be acquainted with these movies/books, so I’ll give you a brief because it’s not self explanatory. The movie revolves around BDSM interwoven in a truly romantic tale. So basically it’s like an erotic book or soft porn which is more suited to a female target audience. For the record, I believe inflicting pain and torture on another for pleasure is the trait of a sadist. I do not indulge in or promote this concept.

About the song that inspired me… This song by Ellie Goulding may seem romantic to someone who hasn’t watched the movies/read the books. Although it’s all romance and sugar-laced, it’s about this timid girl whose first sexual encounter itself is with a man who is heavily into BDSM. She loves him deeply and fears losing him. She is this Literature student who reads romance novels and is hardwired to be hopelessly romantic, the exact opposite of what this man is! So she willfully obliges to enter his world in an attempt to please him. Her motivation stems from a genuinely loving heart. Reluctantly, she decides to take a peek. But, she gets addicted to him and the euphoric bliss that is actually a detrimental and abusive relationship! And when the novelty wears off, her initial hesitation gives way for immense conflict and strife within herself. She is always confused and a slave to the craving that is him! Kinda reminds me of the Stockholm Syndrome!

Lyrically, he’s the light to the darkness he himself has created. He’s the life in her veins and although he’s the cure, he’s also the cause of her pain! Although it appears as if she’s the one leading him through the dark, she’s the one who’s blindly following. She feels like she’s on the edge of paradise, which is exactly the tipping point to fall in or out of grace! It’s not the safest spot. She’s at the tip of her sanity and she’s still refusing to recede to the safe side! She’s in a relationship that she wouldn’t typically have chosen, yet she ignores the reality of her situation to focus her gaze on the ecstatic euphoria of loving him. They’ve got a ‘safe word’ and if you watch snippets, you’ll believe she’s the one asking for it all, pining for him as she’s prompting him to ‘stop waiting’ and constantly implores him to love her the way he does. But, he’s actually the one in control of each and every aspect of this unconventional relationship that solely revolves around intimacy.

Like all my music-inspired poems, I suggest playing the song in the background as you read; it elevates the experience!

Here’s another poem that I had written which was inspired by Fifty Shades Of Grey

Love Me Like You Dopoem by Ruelha

You're the dark
You're the light
You're the mix in my blood
The one who injected this mud
You're the cure to this pain
You're the one who introduced it, all the same
Yet from you, I can't abstain.
So many things, I fear
Yet I'm drawn to you, near
You're the only thing I want to touch
Never knew I'd want someone this much

I've never felt so high
My body feels like it's reached the sky
As you fade in and fade out
I involuntarily blackout
Over the edge of paradise I float, meditating
Intoxicated with you, on the perimeter of danger, I'm levitating
On every inch of your body, I'm concentrating
Making every breath more exhilarating
I'll lead you to my holy grail
Where senses succumb, to be enslaved
You're the only thing I want to touch
Never knew I'd want you this much

You say you follow me through the dark
But I'm just tracing over your watermark
I've let you set the pace
Cause I'm not thinking straight
My head's just spinning
Conversely my body feels like it's winning
A strange world within me you brought to life
It feels peace only within your strife
So love me like you do; touch me like you do
Once again, take me to that fiery avenue
What are you waiting for?
Calm the conflict within this war

You're the only thing I want to touch
Never knew I'd want someone this much
So love me like you do; touch me like you do
Take me to that fiery avenue
What are you waiting for?
Calm the conflict within this war
Your influence is maleficent
And, I'm caught in your addiction
Even the aura reeks of impulsive desire
Yet only you can set my heart on fire

Love Me Like You Do – Lyrics

You’re the light, you’re the night
You’re the color of my blood
You’re the cure, you’re the pain
You’re the only thing I wanna touch
Never knew that it could mean so much, so much

You’re the fear, I don’t care
‘Cause I’ve never been so high
Follow me through the dark
Let me take you past our satellites
You can see the world you brought to life, to life

So love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do
What are you waiting for?

Fading in, fading out
On the edge of paradise
Every inch of your skin, is a Holy Grail I’ve got to find
Only you can set my heart on fire, on fire

Yeah, I’ll let you set the pace
‘Cause I’m not thinking straight
My head’s spinning around, I can’t see clear no more
Oh, what are you waiting for?

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do, oh
What are you, what are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?

Oh, I’ll let you set the pace
Oh, ’cause I’m not thinking straight
Though my head’s spinning around, I can’t see clear no more
What are you waiting for?

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (Like you do, oh)
Oh, love me like you do
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do, oh
Oh, what are you waiting for?

Love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do (Like you do)
Lo-lo-love me like you do
Touch me like you do, to-to-touch me like you do, oh
What are you, what are you waiting for?
