Can't think of one

I want you to hold me softly,
gently,
as if you are afraid I would
break.

I want to strip
my clothes, my mind
into your palms,
sink into the soft folds of your body
like quicksand -

forgive me, for
he has made me
ashamed
of the feelings in the lines of my face,
the sounds of my voice
uttered behind closed bedroom
doors -
I am afraid of myself.

So, hold me softly, gently,
as if you are afraid I would break,
yet rest your whole
weight
on top of the walls of my
ribcage,
plant your desire roughly
among my blue thoughts -

you know I have wanted this
since the moment we met.
