you are who i want//always be mine

you are who i want.

no one else.

the totality of your being lives deep inside of mine

and there is nothing you or i could do to shake each other off.

i melt at your kiss

and my lips part to welcome the familiar warmth,

your body wraps around mine like it’s lived there all its life

yet we’re so different and separate

that at times i ache to know what you are thinking about.

let me know every pain or joy you’ve ever experienced,

let me feel the weight of your world on my shoulders and help you lift it above our heads.

let me be your person

and please

always be mine.

guessing game

my complexity as a person has always, unfortunately, left me speechless–

or rather,

incapable of conjuring up the correct word to express the totality of

the vast reaches of my humanity.

and with age,

it has only become a frustrating guessing game of which word will sum me up in that sliver of a moment.
