Nimble Fingers

with nimble fingers you slowly
unwind the walls encompassing
my heart

like detangling my favorite
necklace you watch me struggle
with before you take over

like unraveling your earphones
and losing yourself in your
favorite sounds

your beauty is inconceivable
a rarity in my life

i’m so used to dark and dreary
and you’re as cliche as it comes
a breath of fresh light

so when i say you broke
the walls surrounding me it
is true

but it wasn’t with a sledge

but with patient words and
sweet caresses that I lost
myself to you.
