I didn’t see you coming,
In this uncertain chapter of my life,
But now each page falls open at your face.
When I read between the lines,
And reach between my thighs,
It is your name my lips whisper.
It is too soon to feel this real,
I am afraid that I am too much or not enough for you,
And I don’t want to make you my everything,
And lose myself in another false promise.
But I know that there is something stirring between us,
And it is a wild untamable thing,
Like the heart inside my ribcage,
It has started out on a different beat.
I am not used to this kindness,
And you challenge me in so many ways,
You make me laugh for days,
And I feel safe locked in your embrace.
Last night you looked deep into my eyes,
And asked sincerely ‘Who are you?’
And with a kiss I swallowed the word my soul screamed,
with every ounce of my being..
