Melanin melanin on the wall.

And then my mind begins to drift away into your arms.

They always had this soft feel to them.

I remember the colour of your skin.

The deep melanin it seemed to drip.

No matter how dark the room was.

The deep richness of your dark skin always seemed to glow.

Glow more than the silver of the moon.

I remember the safety I felt. The warmth of your skin that always seemed to whisper:

“Everything will be okay. All will be well”


I got lost in your chest.

I never cared or had thoughts outside of you and I and this very moment.

I was present.

Present to the safety your body would invite me into.

As it whispered,

All is well.

All is well.

You are safe.

I will protect you.


Stay blessed.
