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 words might come out as simple as sugar
they mean the world in all its richness.
you know you’ve begun
to care about someone when
you have become selfish with their time.
your mind is honey to my mouth,
kiss me with your intellect and serenade me with your passions.
touch my heart and tickle my thoughts,
no physical contact is needed, let me in on what you’re thinking.
you make me vulnerable,
i can’t even function like a normal human being when you’re around.
it’s out of my control,
my eyes draw circles around your lips and i have to look away because i forget how long i’ve been staring.
you make my mind mush
and that’s okay.
All internalized into my little head.
It’s not like I’m desperate to hold you,
To be held by you.
But it’s cold in here and I’ve been here alone for quite some time.
I can’t call this love,
It isn’t even infatuation.
It’s pure attraction.
Your eyes and your hair that falls to your neck, sweeping past your ears.
I have a lot of time to stare and think but the more I look, the more I can’t breathe.
It’s the passion that’s enticing.
The moment where our eyes meet and I’m carried back to safety.
I’m safe in my house but,
I’ve been here alone for quite some time.
