A delicate thing

Intimacy is a delicate thing
The wings of a dragonfly 
The toutou of a porcelain ballerina
The rim of a crystal glass
The transparent surface of a floating bubble

Intimacy is a delicate thing
Do not hold it too long
Do not try to stretch it, bend it
Do not  sink your teeth on it
Do not press it too strong

It may make you bleed
Uncover your weaknesses
Expose your nakedness
Leave you bare

It may vanish 
Turn into  ashes
Before your eyes

This delicate
Fleeting little thing
