I Want to See You

I want to see you
To feel your skin in my hands

I want to feel your lips on mine
To see your smile and hug me

Caution leads me
Keeps me from running to you

I no longer fear being hurt
I fear your indifference


Place a hand on my chest

Listen to the beat of my heart

Place another on my arm

Running fingers down my skin

Know these feelings of touch

Are solid

My body, my presents

Is still here

Recognition in loyalty

Could be a mutual understanding

A place to run, to hope, to be safe

Somewhere with us
