makes me feel sick

knotting your hand in mine
adds more tangles to my self-loathing
and we speak only in tongues
we vomit the language of love

it's a pathetic thing
stripped bare are our bodies
beyond our control
it gets hot under these covers
though your eyes, and mine, remain cold

makes me feel sick
I'll repeat that still
let it smother my heartbeat
until I believe it

Not even sex

Nor love

I just need a hug

I'm never more in love with you
than I am in those moments
that you're at your most vulnerable

We become connected to another by silence ~ not by talking.

Intimacy begins with the most innocent of gestures

A curious smile

The lips speak a sweet word, yet not explicit; the intimacy prevails.

It hides behind soft kisses

a gentle touch

sometimes in your sublime presence alone the intimacy is far too much.

Intimacy is not behind closed doors
It does not always reside between sheets
It shows itself in a knowing look
In forests, shorelines, streets.

Intimacy sends you shivers through a written word or song

But between you and I it hasn't shown itself in far too long.

I know you so well, sometimes I think
that even though it's you who has belonged to your body
for twenty eight years and eleven months, it is me
who knows every secret behind every scar, smile
and all of your skin.

we no longer achieve
intimacy by
peeling off our
skin like the band aid
that will sting as it is torn away.

intimacy is the art
of feeling like a monument torn apart,
hoping no one will tear you down
to create a better

i have become depressed-
repressing all the love i have to give
if only i could shed my shadows
and remember we are only flesh.

i don’t remember
how to be intimate.

Your teeth graze my bottom lip to come to nip
the corner of my smile where you linger awhile
your breath, hot blooded sin, prickles on my skin
till every puckering pore has me begging for more
and your eyes lock with mine as our bodies intertwine.
Help me remember to forget.

ll in love with the ones who only crave intimacy.

don't fall in love with the ones who only crave intimacy.
the ones who are there because
they're driven by sweet words and an even sweeter kiss.
and that drive
gets higher,
it gets faster,
as more touch gets involved.
but they only crave intimacy,
while you crave something much more.
don't fall in love with the ones who will touch you
and make you feel like
you're floating,
because soon enough they'll push you to the ground,
leaving you to question everything with nothing but
the bruises and scars on your body
left over from
their touch,
their kisses,
their words.
don't fall in love with the ones who only crave intimacy.
they won't want you how you want them.
trust me,
because I crave intimacy.

There will always be strangers
They just walk into your life
You don't know for better or worse
Through the days you smile or cry
There will be many types of relationship
Aquintances, Friends or even life partners
There are times when you face hardships
Where there are certan miscommunication
Which would certainly rise the tension
And would lead to certain decisions
Sometimes your heart will surely tore
Watching people go right out the door

This is something we have to face every single day
