Need Blooming on a Cliff's Edge

I need your gentle fingers

To grace my skin

As your warm arms embrace me

And hold me together

 

I need your soft lips

To linger on each syllable

As your words

Talk my mind off a cliff

 

I need your strength

To become my life raft

As you save me from

My engulfing darkness

 

I need your hands

To hold me near you

As your heart beats

Letting me know you're still there

 

I need your warm stomach

To rise and fall

As you breathe peacefully

Sleeping next to me

 

I need your eyes

To look clearly at  me 

As you let me memorize

Your every inch

 

I need your intozicating scent

To surround me

As I search tirelessly

For any stable ground

 

I need your Promise

To show how much you care

As you slowly unveil

My most delacate layers

 

I need your understanding

To Shine a light through my storm

As I choose to trust you

With my every felling

 

I need your kisses

To fall gently on my forehead

As you whisper slowly

My three favorite words

This poem is about: 
Me
