Coaxed by R.T (

I have been coaxed
by the hundreds of
black enameled lashes
of your eyelids.
Who knows what is
behind the face of a young mister;
heart and lips soft as untamed cotton.

I have been coaxed,
in your eyes’ planets there are,
I have seen their little hidden cosmos.

I have been coaxed,
your words play in my head
all the day long.
I take the pillow,
I tighten it up against my chest,
as hard as I can,
‘to feel loved or alone’,
and the thought of your onyx eyes
is a brilliant symphony,
I wear my ballet shoes and
I dance with you…

And I have been coaxed,
I admit it,
for good or for bad,
by you,
by you,
and only you.
