Poetry

In those moments...

February 1, 2005

The purity of his skin
Melts away my defenses-
His presence: slows an element
In my being.
I am raw-
Infinite-
Unashamed and
Unassuming.

Can I contain fire
in my hands?
In those moments-
I can.

An untamed savage.
Real and unafraid.
All woman.
With a hint of cockiness
to my grin.

Reality?
Exactly what I make it.

Can I gather a storm
in my arms?
In those moments-
I can.
