And yes I am tender
My tenderness is not like that of human flesh that you stab and blood comes out slipping over my body, dragging this soul to it's end
My tenderness is like that of an oyster that you stab and pearls will come dancing over the edges of my body...
And yes I am tender
I am tender like a breath
My tenderness is not like any other breath that you take for granted
My tenderness is like that of your last few breaths where every inhale and exhale counts..
And yes I am tender
I am tender like the impalpable flames of fire
My tenderness is not like that of those flames that give you warmth and you blow them away, once you fulfill your purpose
But like the flames that will give you warmth but if you try to blow me away my sparks will drag you in this dazzling fire until every part of you doesn't get baptized in me....
And yes I am tender
And don't you confuse my tenderness for my weakness....
It is my strength and has always been ...
