Timidly Bold by Anna T Gowera

Gushing

Face flushing;

Pale

But emotions the strength of gale!

A grip around my heart,

A knot in my throat –

Strong hand;

Mighty fist!

No! No! But Yes! Yes!

Unfamiliar road;

Uncharted land

Closed off territory

Did I not swear to never return?

But deeper and deeper

My feet decide to walk

Into this forest,

Dense and manly bush!

Oh heart,

Thud, thud, thud…

What have you done:

Why this high treason?

But heart, Oh blessed heart,

Thank you for shunning reason

And leading me to my bud;

Bud, bud.

Gushing, splashing

Help me; I can’t breathe!

Drowning, sinking

Awash in grand aura…

One, two, spittle, cough;

Oh don’t save me, I beg of you!

Let me be in this moment

Because I love him

Oh yes, I do!!
