Unknown Feelings and Fears

Swelling of the heart, heart pumping faster, lumping in your throat,

tears slowly inching their way down the face.

Brief touch of lips, quick as the touch of a small raindrop in a

Warn and sunny rain. More tears, bigger, faster, full of meaning.

What are these feelings, these fantastic wonderful feelings.

So strong my breast years, so strong that my breath comes out

ragged.

So ragged that all I can take are deep breaths sustaining me for

mere seconds while the next beat of my heart sends need for more

breath in this endless cycle.

I don't know what I'm feeling. I question what's next.

Something yearning to be released, only to be held back by foolish

pride, and the fear that persecution may result by releasing these feelings.

I'm so confused.

What am I becoming?
