My heart opened
Right into your being
Beyond all the traumas
That direct so many
Continued into places
Rarely felt and finding
Untouched portals into my soul.
And yet I don’t remember asking,
wishing it
To leave me alone and then not
And here you remain
Where touch is painful
And tender not trusted,
Yet wanted.
What to do, as I awake
trying to leave my bed
As my day begins—
You haunt my every moment
Something came to us both
Love… Not polite or nice
Ready or not
Are you still here.
