oxytocin

the tips of your fingers
trace swirls of tenderness
on the back of my hand
and we relax into one another
casting a protective spell
against the crushing pressure
some call life

night soul woman The PoetBay support member heart!
This is a very precious and eloquently described moment! I also love the way you define what is actually going on.

"casting a protective spell
against the crushing pressure
some call life"

It is not us against them but humbly we and our priorities and for a moment you protect yourselves from your own choices, what you treasure most(?)
