  let me intimidate you
let me frighten you fully
fiercely and completely
first, that fence you make
with that guarded gaze
let me through it
let me go, leave me off the leash
and don't curl up like that to hide
that shape is the shape of
a beckoning finger
next, that silence you bring
with your bowed head
let me through it
there are words waiting
and don't blink, blue eyes,
that quick quivering is you
chasing a breath in your chest
as you yearn to decide to
let me intimidate you

I really like it! The minimal punctuation keeps it flowing very quickly.
