An Intrinsic Exquisite

to be touched



what if I loved him?

what would it feel like
inside - to be loving him?
outside - to be touching him?


to be touched

and then, of course, if I love him
will he love me too
or is he simply
wondering what it's like to be inside
a girl like that

is he ready to think in terms of men and woman
to leave behind the games of girls and boys?

I like him enough to find out
if he asks
if he reaches out to kiss me

I will reach back and kiss him
then we'll know
a little more
