fallen
hard on the floor,
on my knees, begging
for this to stop, for
you to go, for you
to be here, to be
anywhere close enough to
touch, kiss, hold in the
most innocent of ways.
you have a profound effect
on the heart i barred away
i never thought i could
or would ever feel things like
this, this nervous bubbling
fluttering in my stomach and
my heart like wings beating
harder, harder than my breathing when
i stop to think of you.
