Bang Bang Bang

How could anyone not love this beautifully crafted human body?
I get scared each time your hands move towards your face to hide your goodly teeth and imperfect laugh
I fear I might become hypertensive with the way you cause an increase in the beat of my heart
I used to get jealous I had to share you with others
Until I understood that I alone couldn’t handle all your fineness
You’re a time bomb with no switch, no alarm; just an explosion waiting to happen
Can I be your bang?
You must be a comma, the number of times you’ve caused my head to stop and my heart to pause
I could never explain in detail
Can I be your bang?
When my bones become weak, can I still hold your hands?
