Your Touch - Poem by Jessica Holt
Whenever you touch me
It’s like being shocked with static electricity
An electric charge runs through my body
I feel butterflies fluttering in my belly
I shiver as if it were twenty degrees,
Yet my cheeks begin to grow crimson,
Like an autumn leaf changing its skin.
The new material Jell-o makes up my knees
The heat, the cold, oh no it gets worse
My tongue is suddenly a banana slug
It moves in slow motion, I cannot converse
Was I secretly slipped some kind of drug?
The idiotic clown’s grin from ear to ear
I cannot erase no matter how hard I try
My heart is pounding so loud I cannot hear.
The sparkle cannot be missed in my eye.
This inner storm dismantles so much,
All of this caused solely by your touch
