Layer

Barriers broken, words unspoken.
Can't let you in, my skins to thin.
My hands are bare, sweat covers the fear.
A layer taken, starting to break in
My thoughts are shaken, I can't breath....
I'm sinking slowly, I have to leave...
The door is closing, I'm slowly choking.
Your presence is provoking, intoxicating,
Another layer taken...nothing faking.
I'm slipping in silence, weakened in shyness.
Butterflies fluttering, anxious, nervous, whenever your near.
A layer has just again, disappeared.
Your touch is tender, passionate, intense.
I'm breathless, blinded have no defense.
I can't deny what I feel inside,
although I hide, a layer subsides
This is heavy. I love you so much.
I scream with emotion, each time we touch.
You have pulled me out,
I have let you in. I have never experienced this feeling
Vulnerable no longer, my heart secured.
My love cry's with happiness, no longer a layer, a layer no more........

I haven't heard of that song. I was listening to the Eurythmics this morning. There are a lot of good songs out there. I was lsitening to "If You Leave" by OMD yesterday. Reminded me of my 1986 prom. I got to go, but I had to leave early and never even got a kiss, at least she was pretty.dancing teddybear dance

I am colored in skin. No one gots to come in. Pull me out from inside. I am folded and unfolded and unfolding I am color blind. Coffee black and egg white. Pull me out from inside. I am ready. I am ready I am fine.
Such a beautiful song. And a beautiful wonderful poem that you wrote while thinking of that song. You are so talented.
