I never told you this but

It always makes me wonder

How much power a finger can have

When it disappears

into the center

and tingles like hell

I’m not heavyweight

but I’m still heavier than your

little mighty finger

and still it drives me crazy

controls me as if I’m nothing but a puppet

causing me severe anxiety sometimes

and extreme pleasure of completeness


It makes me crawl on my knees towards you

begging to never let that finger

of yours take away from me

I always get confused

when I think

if you didn’t have that finger

would I still be loving you

the way I always do?

Is it you I love the most

or your finger?
