Can I Have It There?

I do long to feel the touch
that makes my body go numb.
The ‘careless' whisper
that makes me feel like a deaf.
The rhythm that your fingers tend
to make when going up and down my temple.
Who could ever give me more than what you can?
Who could ever be there for me when I yell?

I am bragging about the knowledge:
ever pouring from your sweet lips.
You don't only bring words to my mind,
but words out of my heart.
You give me skills
to make better the 'who' that I am.
You give me skills
that make others feel insecure.

That's what you do,
my one and only.
