Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

despite our hopeful encounter, I must in caution decline
bruises from dancing

elegantly we dance together
and though our moment comes and goes
still one caress lives electric
in a world that no one else knows

but alas sometimes I must say no
and just take it on the chin
I carry the hurt inside my chest
as a bruise on my heart within
