Slipping Upon a Crescent Moon

C antankerous and chimerical - comingle with my childlike charms.
 A morous and antagonistic - angel wings melt within my arms.
  N urturing and nostalgic - as I cradle one's frangible needs.
   C aress my curvaceous chasms - when shared confusion slowly bleeds.
    E ver evasive, always enticing - my heart may tease you; yet not tempt.
     R eminiscent and roseate - dancing with dreams not yet dreamt.

Author's Note:
Cancer - June 29th 19....
Sorry, my computer froze.
