Night Friend

The night time is the worst,I can almost feel the loneliness begin to creep its way as soon as the sun sets,Feeling like no one cares or thinks about me,After all my duties are done and I sit alone,Surrounded by 4 walls and no one to talk to,What do I do?Who do I turn to?Who…

Words To Swallow

I look at you and feel an overwhelming rush of emotions,So many words I wish I could say, But they all pile up in my throat,Bubbling, churning and flipping over inside me, This is literally my deepest fear,Taking a chance and saying how I feel,Opening myself up, being vulnerable,How can I let you know just…

I never expected to be so invested, so soon, I never thought I would feel love, ever again, I never thought someone would care about me like you do, I believed I was the problem, That I was incapable of love, Too emotional and dramatic, a lover of conflict, I never expected to be swept…

Touch

You smile at me, Your fingers glide across my neck, A sound escapes my throat, You pull me into your embrace, I feel it deep within my gut, You pull yourself back and cradle my face, A grin spreads across my mouth, Anticipating and melting, You draw me in with your slow, deep kisses, Exploring…

Longing

For years I would have denied it,Suppressed the feelings and shoot you down,But as I get older and possibly more mature,I realize that that through it all, I have simply been longing…Longing for someone I can trust explicitly,Longing for someone to love me unconditionally,Longing for someone to be my person,Longing to fully let my guard…
