SHIELDS

We lay naked,
Nude, our bodies, touching, but, yet
 
We lay separated,
Shields, to protect
 
Ourselves not from sharp weapons
Or piercing gunshots, but from the words we
 
Are both afraid to mutter, the words,
“I love you.”
“I loathe you.”
 
Touch me again darling, touch me,
Drop your shield, it’s all I ask of you.

My Heart is Not My Own

My hearts beats in my chest
But it is not my own
It was here one day
Then gone the next
When his eyes caught mine
And set me on fire
A longing desire
My heart now to him it belongs
My soul has also drifted along
