Skin

When she touches me for the first time, my body reflexes
Defense walls had to be repaired after the last intrusion
Months of repairs and reconstruction
So when she touched me, alarms went off and safeguards were activated
Emotions were escorted to safe zones for protection
My exterior was ready for damage
Preparing for the worse
Unable to absorb emotions like young lovers
Without painful memories of previous wars
But I realize she fought battles of her own
And when I touch her skin
She has flashbacks of previous conflicts
So I allow her to touch me
And I slowly reveal the weakness in my armor
Allowing her to see battle scars in my heart
Hoping she also reveals the battle tags from the wars she fought
