Tether your heart to mine,
under the warm sun
and let’s exchange
lazy side-eye smiles
where we pretend that we are shy.

But only for a moment.

Until you hold my gaze with your
stare,
and you soften me.

And I, compelled, 
melt for you

In this one small moment
that the world has
given to us,
my walls vanish,
and I bask in your light.

And your energy that
holds me…
it charges me,
gives me life.

It is magic.

Let me disappear in your energy,
swallow me whole
and color my world
in you.

I will dissolve only to emerge
lightened
and 
new.
