This skin that you bare
Speaks thousands to me
Your gait’s so enchanting
Too good to be true
Too good is your charm
My alarm has set off
What if you’re not mine?
And for you I’m sport
What if we were never
For each other meant?
And that dreaded day comes
When you shed your skin
The real “you,” you make known
To my own dismay
And of my own misery
You drink to your fill
So ‘ere you get comfortable
In your very own skin
Just know I won’t let you
Get under my skin

  1. The Narrator says she forbids that this charming person gets under her skin and I say he hasn’t only gotten therein, he DOES actually reside there! He lives there! Can’t you see?! πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜†

    Moreover, all if what this is, is really a hunch! What if this charmer’s for real?! What if there’s no skin to shed?! What if he’s one in a gazillion, a diamond amongst stones…rare but not inexistent?! Too good to be true but none has ever been more truthful and or realer! Would you rather live a life of what ifs or just take a wild, crazy chance at love?! Just what if he’s ‘the one’?! Think ’bout it! πŸ˜›πŸ˜†

    Sometimes in life, due to some distasteful precedences in our experiences; we just consciously or unconsciously jinx ourselves into believing that we aren’t deserving of the best and finer things life has to offer! Freedom as defined by the great Russian -American Writer, Ayn Rand is ‘ To ask nothing, expect nothing and depend on nothing’! So then, take a chance and you just might hit your jackpot! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

    • Hey sis. This is an absolutely positive perspective but then, what do I expect? It’s Yemie. No room for fear, doubt and what-ifs. And I agree with you. Never let sad precedents in our lives prevent us from achieving better possibilities in the future. Thanks sis. You rock big timeπŸ‘
