With every gentle kiss,
I unraveled,
With every hug,
I unfold,
With every caress,
I melt.
With every sweet word or text.
I burst into myself,
With every gesture,
I feel myself opening up,
With every unwavering support,
I am reaffirmed there are good people in the world,
With every hand you reach out to me,
I palpitate,
With every caress,
I think it can’t get any better than this,
With every small deed,
I ask myself what I did to deserve this,
With every sly smile,
The walls around my heart begin to crumble,
Fold, flipping and fumbling towards you…
