natural

by lauren atkinson


I’ll calm your nerves

While you stroke mine;

It’s making you relax

And allowing me to 

unwind.

Never, neither of us,

second or behind.

I’ve got a silent hunger

and you’ve got a drive.


We balance each other out,

rebalance any scale.

Others make it competition,

A constant tally of scores:

We’re just keeping it natural. 

Our love makes it natural;

You make it natural.


It’s part of you 

As my first choice

and me being you’re honest bet.

You’d still bring me home to

Mom

I will always plan out

Favorite Things Day.

I’ve got your number

And you’ve got all my time.

We annoy each other most,

Poke every bear around.

Others make it an argument,

A constant fire of words:

We’re just keeping it natural. 

Our love makes it natural;

You make it natural.
