Gentle words caress my battered soul
sweet nothings shimmy down my ear canal
and soft kisses mend my battered heart.
My skin tingles beneath your touch
the hard shell melting under the warmth
of your understanding heart.
Majestic butterflies swim through my stomach,
a wave flopping back and forth against
the shore at the mere thought of being near you.
I swore I'd never fall again.
Then you came along and breathed
new life into my long dead body.
You took my pieces and made me whole again,
serenading hope back into my lungs
and jolting my belief in fairy tales to life.
Your smooth fingertips glide across my thigh
a grin spread across your soft lips
kicking my heart into high gear.
