We are the Same

My fingers are tingling
For you

Your smooth skin
And liquid personality

Like fire, taking control
Quick whip of authority

When needed, of course.
Leader. Hawk, is what they call you

I see beneath those deep
Dark eyes like a black hole

But there’s nothing to be afraid of
I trust you like a candle does its flame

A secret, pain perhaps
That runs deep yet is bound

You’re skilled. For it’s buried
Deep by your ravishing personality

Humor and a flash of white smile
To hide the thoughts, and pain at night

But I’m not like the others
I see. You.

A needle prick upon my finger
Infected with curiosity

The feeling of safety
Only a baby feels in its mother’s arms

Take me- like our bodies
Are atoms bound to collide

Imminent yet pulled by the shadows
Of our past. Careful, slow

Savoring the moments like
A thick stake. Beautiful

Sweet bliss
Like young teenagers

Grasping loving hands and
Dancing long into the night
