May 2018
She strips away her clothes,
Like petals from a rose.
Exposing her body and soul.
What she wants,he knows.

But can he really take it all?
All that she is giving to him.
She's given herself to him.
But all he can give her is hesitation.

And his doubt chills her soul,
Colder than the cool air,
As it caresses her naked beauty.

She decides to get dressed,
And leave.
But he stops her.

Realising what a tragedy he committed.
Better to throw caution to the wind,
Than to live life overthinking.
And so he discards his clothes and his fears,
And loses himself in the beauty that is her.
