i am very tired
but i don’t sleep
for you are in bed
with me in my head
and even in the privacy
of my mind i am shy
scared, and do not know
what to do
with you

i think when we
have our first night together
it will be very hard
for you to unlock me
my tongue will be tied
and you must teach me
to speak i love you

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
