    I surrender to you. You take me (in your arms) and your sunshine embrace warms my skin. You are nature and everything else good. Your kisses sooth like raindrops on my rose-petal lips; I want to soak them up. The light breeze of your fingertips tracing paths down my body makes...

    "you'll remember me, won't you?" nervously as your shaking fingers graze my own I giggle, of course, I say, it's only for two weeks and besides, It's not like we're in love. I don't know how but then strong hands pulled in my waist and everything I wa...

    Waves Crashing gently into my legs Washing shells In creamy shades of pink and orange and blue Onto the white sandy shores of Sanibel Island. Salty water soaks through my shorts, Cooling me from the setting sun, Refreshing like a drink of water As I run and laugh in the ocean. Suddenly, ...

    I heard it through the grapevine, A watchful weapon above the world, a little birdie, Singing your secrets to the town Told me the awful truth.
