I crave your touch
on my being;
if only the air you breathe.

I need your lips to tremble
when you see me;
if only out of fear

I choked you
with my embraces
and I know I hurt you
with my words.

But I'll be gentle
if you take me back.
I'll always love you softly;
if only from afar.

gentle love (so many, endless sides of love, endless combinations, a rubix cube no one can solve)

a soul-touching, delicious shiver of hopeful emotion i see here.
