Would you have touched my scars,
Traced their violent lines with
The delicate pads of your fingers,
Mending me with your compassion?
Would I have touched your neck with
My lips, my mouth, my teeth,
Before we kissed,
Washing away your doubt?
Would you shudder to feel the palms of my hands
Glide from your knees to your thighs,
As the warmth of my lips meet your breasts
Erasing all of your fears?
Would you answer my desire
With all of your compassion
Forsaking all of those broken memories
Awakening all of the dreams within you?
I think so.
