    Your chocolatey covered skin
    So rich
    …so creamy smooth
    just let me touch you, babygurl
    please,
    can I be with you

    for all the things you’ve suffered
    I deeply apologize
    As time has come and gone
    I hope you’ve come to realize
    That in this trial of love and life
    And
    Games
    And bitter truths
    There’s nothing like the tug of war
    That’s brewing within you

    When I look upon your face
    I see the pain time tried to erase
    And though the many lines suggest that you’re cruel
    I look into your eyes and they tell me all is cool

    Your skin
    Browned a beautiful
    Bronze
    By the afternoon sun
    As I rub my body
    Against yours
    My skin tingles
    My mind soars.

    As I look at you.

    It's a blessing to know that there are men in the world who can still love a woman in spite of her painful past.

    feeling the love in this piece:)
