It touched me
With its words,
Penetrating the deepest
confines of my soul,
And ignited a fire within me -
One that burned ever so slightly
out of control.
Its warmth
blanketed my body,
Enveloped me within its
strong and massive arms.
I held on to it tightly
though it manifested no form,
And I stayed there
but for a time...
And time stood still.

It touched me with its words,
and it... was you.

Brandyn,
This "touched me" too.  I guess I react strongest to words that I can easily relate to, and that's what these words have done to me.  Very powerful.

This was absolutely breathtaking. I liked how you built the poem around on how you feel and then revealed the reason why. both creative and beautiful. wonderful!

take care,
