weird interactions

BY: Shelbi Henny

a smile is crucial in the mahogany 
crawling into more sensuality
wonder evaluates the primary instinct
and all though we just met I feel closeness
yet with the wall I built I keep you at a distance
sharing stories of fruitful beginnings 
I share my philosophy
which never fully makes sense
you get me
compromising stories of shameful deeds
I hold nothing back
because you fully understand my ugly
you will see the vulnerability 
as tender as a rose
I fold and die in the winter
I transform in the spring 
analyzing each problem that never occurred 
I prepare for the worst
this is so unreal to me
comfort ability built like a pyramid
within a day
and though I never planned for this union
I embrace and fight it the same
