This is a poem I wrote to describe an amazing feeling that was awakened in me for the first time in two years this past weekend by a special girl. It feels great to just like someone again; I think I can finally allow myself the opportunity to love once more.

It seems an age since I allowed myself to feel

Vault closed, combination locked, perfectly sealed

Hiding away, cautious and timid, cynically healed

That secret place within my soul where love is real

 

She was oblivious, but she took a sledgehammer to the door

Her beauty stung my eyes, I had to see and explore

Her words a coaxing melody, soothing my damaged core

A carefully placed hand beckons me to soar

 

At war within myself, should I let emotion out

A debate between my hopeful heart and my mind full of doubt

This feeling is so foreign, yet I know what it's about

It lay resting in the shadows while I went on without

 

She brings it to the surface, slowly and with care

I stand in shock, I cannot move, all I can do is stare

She moves closer, holds my hand, smiles as if to dare

I can't hold back, I let go and our lips become a pair

 

Lost in a wild torrent, two bodies perfectly flow

A dance of souls and hearts, a gentle to and fro

Eyes locked, never flinching, never wanting to let go

A shared passion, so deep, breaking the status quo

 

Her name floats through my very soul, constantly repeating

She holds my heart in her hands; master of its beating

Together we writhe entwined, the very air is heating

Our fates are sealed, through a kiss, upon our lips first meeting
