Butterflies and Bonfires

In the dark, next to you

You’re warmer than the flames

We sit near.

The alcohol is talking,

Your eyes enticing conversation pieces.

I’m happy.

I’m nervous.

I’m scared shitless and

Ruffled by the butterflies

That grow to falcons flapping

In my stomach when you touch me.

I’ll clip their wings

If they dare carry me away

From this moment

With you.
