Butterfly Kisses

There’s a pureness

In my loving you

And in your loving me

Pulsing and enveloping us

Filling the awkward spaces between

There’s a softness

In your kissing me

And me kissing you

Gentle yet daring

And bound by its honesty

To mix passion with truth

There’s a sweetness

In your care for me

And in my care for you

We make love in our words

In our tears

Falling down



And oh so divine


This was a romance

Yet to truly be awakened

For I was too afraid

To express, to explore

Or even to acknowledge

That strange, new and gentle embrace

P.C: Nicholas Borolla
