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
always be mine.
my hues of blue
contort into something new
when i am with you.
i don’t know whether to trust myself
or trust the words coming out of your mouth
because at least you have this all figured out.
you say you’re no good for me,
let me be the judge of that.
i have to bring my finger to your lips to stop you from uttering
those words that bring saddness to your eyes and i want to kiss those
you’re good for me,
enough for me,
i find myself doing what he does
because it reminds me of when his arms were around me,
and his fingers were interlocked with mine.
i cannot refrain from mimicking the small beauties of his ways,
they are a part of me now,
a part of me i don’t ever want to lose.
i find myself laughing like he does,
asking like he does,
and it’s as comforting as a drawn out hug of his,
the one where i wrap my arms around to the small of his back and
press my face to his chest and feel his heart beat.
i find myself wanting to be where he is,
but i can’t be too selfish with his time and presence so i keep his
ways wrapped up in mine and i’ve found that it keeps him close.
my words might come out as simple as sugar
they mean the world in all its richness.
