WHAT DO YOU WANT ?

I want connection

Something real that you feel 

With the back side of your hand

To gauge the temperature

To know what radiates from my mate

 

I want security 

I want to feel safe in the arms of another 

Safe to be me

Safe to speak freely

Safe to expose myself without hesitation

Safe enough to trust somebody 

 

I want romance

I want to make out everywhere 

Everyday 

Because I can 

And it feels good. 

 

I'm shy with my heart

So very sensitive 

 

Anger and sadness both in remission 

A childhood of don't be so damn sensitive

Grew a back bone that made a cage around my whole body 

Now I wear the same face for joy and pain 

What a damn shame
