i know what it is

to write about the tender

language of touch

like one would an old friend


this is a love

that i will not

soon forget


like wanting the feeling

of your fingertips

forever ingrained in my skin


with your comforting weight

on my thighs

and only existing where your




touch my neck


you make my mouth water

and i want to

crawl inside of you

nestle myself behind your heart

make a birdhouse out of your ribcage


darling, you make me bloom

planting seeds in soil

i once thought long since dried 


darling, i’ll write you so

many songs


with nothing but your name

on the tip of my tongue

and hands that do not shake
