"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

It Prickles,
Hairs Stand On End,
Skin Retracts,
Eyes Close.

Heart Pounds,
Fingers Twitch,
Toes Curl Up,
Eyelids Flutter Open.

Spine Shivers,
Breath Catches,
Lungs Malfunction,
Body Halts...

Wind Howls,
Lightning Flashes,
Tears Gather...
It Prickles...

Skin Awakens,
Time Stops,
Hearts beat...
When You touch me.

The author's comments:
There is a human experience in physical contact. the most innocent touch or brushing of arms can cause the heart to race, and the mind to flutter around the idea of love.
