Not afraid

Yesterday I sat for three hours
in front of the man I love
and just stared at him.

I have now memorized
the exact location of
all his spots.

I have drawn a map to
the cheek dimple that
follows his mischievous smile.

A couple of hours later
I had a dream I burned my hand
by touching his face.

I cried as it ached,
but I wasn't afraid.
I am not afraid.

  1. Excellent, I love the imagery of burning your hand. Love has its pains as well as joys.
