being with you is the shower after a long plane ride, the bed after an all-nighter, the water after a workout
it’s the perfect bite of cake through all the layers, the subway door stopping right at your feet, the extra hour of sleep you get in the fall
it’s laughing until we can’t breathe, breathing each other in, interlacing our vulnerabilities -
vulnerable & raw, left falling into your arms, my heart on my sleeve, my head on your chest, and our breathing in perfect unison until darkness, sleep, and peace
I have this strong desire for you all the time. It’s never not there.
Sharp, how quickly we turned into this thing
Soft, how your lips discover my collar bone
Free, how it feels in your car when I sing
Rough, how my mind imagines being alone
Safe, how it feels held tightly in your arms
Urgent, how our kisses melt into each other
Scary, how easy I succumb to your charm
Calm, in the night underneath all the covers
Silent, as my eyes explore yours in the light
Loud, how my laughter travels through to your ear
Brief, the time it took for this to feel right
Alarming, how incomplete it is without you near
Thrilling, this adventure we’ve somehow begun
Ready, at last, to belong to someone
I want to cook for you.
My hand fits your hand the way my laugh fits your jokes.
My likes fit your likes the way my waist fits your hold.
My wonderings fit your musings the way my nose fits your neck.
My blush fits your praise the way my step fits your step.
My stories fit your ears the way my shivers fit your touch.
My gaze fits your gaze the way my little fits your much.
My life fits your life as long as we maintain.
Darling, with you, I’m game if you’re game.
