I don’t know what to say
I have never felt this way before
I don’t know what to feel
like a mute, blind, deaf man
cast overboard at sea
I washed up on your shore
naked, hungry, wanting more
I lay hazy on my back
gazing at the bright stars
thinking I should hide my scars
I don’t want to hide them anymore
I lay here naked needing something more
this all feels so very new
like that first ride at the park on the corkscrew
dizzy laughing all around
children jumping falling down
together in the murky warm blanket of night
buried in my arms your body feels so right
I so want this to be real
even though I don’t know how to feel
