feast on my chaos and dread
tame my misguided tongue
sign my life to yours
simply with the virgin touch
the one that made my skin quiver
wander with your fingers through my awaken flesh
wedge your lips between my hands covering my cowering eyes
whisper ‘i love you’,
once, twice
to ensure i heard you
as my heart paced to the finish line

the music of your voice
the caress
all the pain gone with an embrace
a hold
it was a struggle to let go
to allow such simple expression be explored
violate the sanctity of our friendship
all foregone

we are
and lull
