My Mind, My Heart, My Body. - Poem by Shannon Nicole

She could be anywhere in the world,
and she'd see his face.
A dark, cold breeze could rush passed,
and she'd somehow feel the warmth of his skin.
She could be alone on a silent walk home,
and still feel his presence some place close.

A whisper at the edge of her ear,
Telling her to take a deep breath,
But she can't find the strength to even gasp.
A nip of sharp pain,
She hisses through her clenched teeth,
But she can breath again.
A rush of feeling throughout her body,
Telling her brain not to scream,
Sending all those little messages to her mouth,
Demanding to not even moan.
She failed,
She opened her mouth with her eyes sqeezed shut,
She let out a quick gasp and a minor sigh,
She was feeling better.
Her eyes opened,
Glistening with tears,
She was a girl with a mind full of emotions.
She dared not to open her mouth,
For her teeth attached to her lip,
Causing her to bleed a small wound.
She's telling herself not to say it,
She failed.

He said three magical words,
That caused her heart to race,
And her body to go haywire.
Three words that could mean so much,
That could make a blush creep across your cheeks,
A smile reach your eyes,
And fog fill your brain.

She failed one night,
Her mind told her no,
But her heart told her yes.
She said those three words back,
And she hasn't regretted them yet.
