If I bare
and these pulsating beats
beneath my breasts —
if I bare my chest
and these treasured crushes
on his so adorable self —
and if I bare this warm heart to him
I fear I will be nakedly
in the glare of his cold macho desires
But if he bares his soft spot, his weaknesses,
his real tender heartbeats for me
I swear he will even be more
in the gaze of my untold feminine passions
