Me. You. Us.

Post by Oceantide »

I can breathe.
I can get up and move around.
I can pound a volleyball.
I can smile.
I can laugh.
I can wear my gentle heart on my sleeve without fear.
I can express my feelings without harming you.
I can ask for what I need from you without harming you.
I can flirt.
I can look you in the eye and speak honestly.
I can check you out without self-consciousness.
Do I like what I see? I get to decide.
Me. You. Us.
It’s possible.

I particularly liked what this line conjured up for me, too! I shall make note of it. :)

Thank you, EH and dancingfish. It is nice to know it resonates, that you are a 知音 (someone who "knows the tone" of the poem)
