    “Blushing in Softness”

    i have never felt more beautiful
    than when your hands caress my skin
    when you tell me you love the softness
    that graces your lips upon kissing
    sharp collarbones and shoulder blades
    i become quiet shyness and sweetness
    when you are whispering to me
    small promises of love in my ears
    wishes of want against my breast
    lustful pleads against my thighs
    need spreads over this body
    up long legs, across soft stomach
    gripping tender neck, burning smiling cheeks
    soft hands cling to anything in reach
    as your love blankets me
    to help us forget the harshness of life
    in exchange for the softness of a blush

    My name is Crys and I have been writing for about 15 years now. I decided to embrace my creativity and finally publish it all after encouragement from friends.

    Discovering Sunshine is a 70+ page book of poetry, ramblings, and short-story-esque writings about mental illness, love, abuse, addiction, and more. This book promises to touch on subjects close to the heart and ones we sometimes wish weren’t so near.
