The way that your arms slowly wrap around my cold body and warms it

feels so different,

feels so foreign.


I’m scared of whatโ€™s happening

of the reality that I will have to fully trust and eventually love

scares me

because itโ€™s becoming so easy

yet feels so foreign.


It’s a language that I forgot how to speak

forgot how to read,

I’m terrified.


What If I start mispronouncing the words?

using the wrong punctuation and you get confused

even frustrated as I slowly learn the pure language of your love.

What if while Iโ€™m learning my now cold ways scare you as

I defrost and try?


As your arms tighten I lean back and let go because like a mind reader you tell me to just


and I do.

I feel your love.

Iโ€™m slowly falling in love with you.

        It’s interesting, you’re the first to interpreted it as ” Smexy”. I appreciate it. I guess the act of falling is also pretty sensual. Thank you ๐ŸŒ™
