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 


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
