CAUTIOUS!

Just like a kid
Savoring the candy
Taking my time to enjoy it
Taking my time to taste it
Savoring every time I suck it
Trying to figure out the different flavors
I don’t want to spoil it.

Like the yesterday, today and tomorrow
I pick the petals
Are you it?
Are you not?
Are you it?
Are you not?
I play the game.

Slowly I touch you
Carefully I read you
Not letting myself get ahead of things
Every phrase you utter
I have wanted it
Every question you ask
I have asked why I wasn’t asked
Every touch
I have craved for it
It’s like
It’s almost
Sigh!
Pain holds me
Desire wants out
The mind says hold on
The heart says let go
I have met many
Loved many
Are you the mirror?
