(Touch Me Not)
written by: Miriam Devaprasana
I open up to you,
like the dawn rises to greet the night’s shadows.
Each leaf in longing embrace,
of gentle breeze and graze.
But touch me not
for i will shy, or shrink, or sleep
at the weight of your tease.
Your gaze is fixed;
My eyes grow weary
dazed from fear of caving in.
For your love is like Wildfire;
Your occasional caress of my Pulvinus
between the meadows of desire.
Some days your love is cruel; bewildering,
like strong winds, or curious hands
that pluck, and shake, and pick
any and all amount of Will escape and,
I am left in a haze
trembling, as I unfold once again
for my drooping leaves, yearn to remain
closed, unopened; restored.
And my heart
eager to prevail
