I have forgotten how it feels like to be loved…
I have forgotten the feel of a soft touch..
Fingers caressing the folds of my skin..
Sensuous kisses travelling from the lips
To the nape of my neck and further below..
The tender look which needed not words
And your eyes which said I was your world…
Yes, I’ve forgotten them all, forgotten how they felt like…
No they are no more there and never more will be..
I have lost you, I have lost your love.
I held you in the hollows of my arms
Lifting and supporting you
As you cringed further below
Trying to hide from the eyes
That you once thought adored you.
Insinuating eyes that now follow you
Into every nook and bend
Until you feel cornered
And overpowered by it’s presence.
No the eyes are not there now
But you are overwhelmed with guilt
Which makes you see them everywhere.
My attempts to comfort you are all in vain
Yet I give not up, for you are mine
And mine you’ll always be
I’ll forever protect you
And catch you from falling further.
You are safe beneath my wings.
