Sometimes doubt makes you wonder if your partner really know what he/she is doing. Then it happens just right.

And a touch too tender Skims my cheek Shakes my suspicion Of what I am He sees me He knows me And still A touch too tender Finds me Wanting to believe And a touch too tender His incandescent breath My disbelieving breasts Wanting to provide him A submission of openness And he takes me With gentle lips Life feeding a hunger And a touch too tender But he listens To how it must be Knowing my fears Waiting patient for time And a touch too tender Is a touch just right
