I want to touch you Not in the way you’ve known The way that later fills you with dread The way that makes regret seep from your pores, Oceans fall from your eyes, And the sharp sting of metal coat your tongue Not in the way lovers do The way that should only be spoken of in the dark The way that makes you feel as if your demons have won Making you feel wrong or looked at with disdain No I want to touch you I want to run my fingers over your skin I want to trace the lines of your face and commit them to memory I want to leave my handprint on your soul To fill you with an unforgettable warmth I want my words to find a way under your skin And convince you that you belong I want to touch you in daylight out of the darkness To weave my hand in yours illuminated by the sun I want to know every piece of who you are, To caress every part of your precious mind And cherish it for all the wonders it holds I want to witness your world and all its perfect imperfections, To gather your broken pieces and return them to their rightful places, I want to cradle your heart in my hands To cling to your passion while filling you with love I want to touch you Not in the way void of respect The way society has accepted No I want to touch you In the way God himself designed In the way that banishes anxiety The way that dulls pain And makes one more day seem a little more bearable I want to touch you In the way that brings peace and strength But most of all I want to touch you In the way that begins to bandage the wounds of your past And the way that provides security for the future
