At first glance

His fingers

ever so slowly

dance across my skin

tracing away

all my insecurities

warm gentle lips

kiss away

the haunting pain

that is buried

deep beneath my skin

at first glance

does he know

who I really am

or the weight

of my existence

his words

sweet like candy

I taste

in the deepest

most fragile parts of me

the warmth

like liquid

escapes me

filling my very soul


and satisfying

  1. Your words are one hundred proof. A quick read can leave one drunk, for sure. Beautifully written, CC. Words can often move like fingers across the skin and they can touch us in the deepest of places. I love this!! ❀
