soft touch / bruises like silk
i recall the soft touch of your hand
on my infant cheek--
so delicate in the moment,
but so menacing later on.
i recall the warmth of your skin
as it comforted my shaking hand--
so calm in the moment,
but so frightening later on.
i recall the sweetness of your smile
as it had shone its luminescent glow upon me--
so beautiful in the moment,
but so unsettling later on.
i can't quite understand
why you no longer hold my hand.
see, you have a light touch so full of love,
that it could burst at any moment--
giving way to something sour.
i don't see the reason
for you to make my eyelids change color every season.
see, i have bruises like silk
and blood like milk--
your emotions could drink it all in one sitting.
i don't understand
why my heart still beats if the scale of my wrongdoing is so grand.
see, i have a droplet of hope,
but it falls into an ocean of fear
