Soft Tonight

Soft tonight

I feel so…
… soft…
tonight…

I feel like…
…butter…
under the sun…

…on hot stone…
spreading out…
melting…

…flowing…
a yellow rivulet…
sliding down that slab…

…towards you…

I hope you catch every
t…r…i…c…k…l…e…of  love
I hope you catch every
d…….r……o……p……of me
when I d…r…i…p…intoyourpalms

’cause I feel so…
…soft…
tonight.
