Lisa is a substitute teacher who studies English Literature. She lives to write and is following her dream of becoming a professor.

When you come close to me

I feel so wonderfully free

When you touch my face

I am swept back to another time, another place

Everything else disappears

You and I are the only ones here

Skin to skin, heart to heart

You mend the pieces that are falling apart

When I look deep into your eyes

I can see happiness for the rest of my life

In your arms I feel safe, never scared

You melt away every ounce of fear

Your heart speaks to mine

In a voice that leaves no doubt in my mind

That I am exactly where I need to be

Your spirit has set my soul free

      So great to see you on HP. It is really strange, as I was on google earth,

      yesterday, and it hovered over east TN. Naturally, I wondered how you

      were doing and I looked at notifications this morning, and there you were.

      What a lovely poem! I particularly like the last two lines.

      If we realize that we are 'exactly where we need to be', then we are living in truth. Your words of love and freedom coming together in the same poem are beautifully expressed.

      Great job, Lisa!
