Allow me to caress your skin and wash away all of your worries. I promise I won’t be frigid, just let me touch you. Allow yourself to feel the coolness of my graze as I drip from the tip of your nose and rest in the curve of your lashes. If you let me, I’ll rinse your mind of your thoughts and rid your hands of the earth. If you wish, my touch can be gentle like the flowers that sway in the breeze, or rough like the pods that fall from Sweet Gums. Whatever the wish, my love, I’ll oblige.
