Your touch is like a flickering candle
Even when the candle burns off
The warmth still lingers on
The brown flecks in your eyes
Compels me towards you
Inviting me to find the real person
Underneath all the facade
That you have encased around your soul.
Why are you so afraid to let anyone in?
Even though we have been together for years
I still feel I don’t know you.
I am the stranger who yearns for her lover’s touch.
Am I enough?
