Touched - Poem by Cheryl Griffith

Who are you to stroll into my life
With such boldness and audacity
Claiming with authority
That I am yours and this is destiny?

How is it your words
Are able to move me beyond words
and touch without touching
The very consciousness that makes me woman?

    The commanding character of the hero touches the lady sans his touching her and makes her feel as a woman by consciousness! (Report) Reply

    Are able to move me beyond words
    and touch without touching
    The very consciousness that makes me woman.this is how one claims authoriatively on womanfalk when he is sure that he willd lure and draw the woman she wants.. thi is not easily done as feeling is from both sides and nothing can go wrong if it is earnest and pure one....i m moved my themes 10
