I want to wrap you

around my body like a room.

Floor to ceiling, only you.

I am grasping at your smile for context.

We are dreaming out loud,

just the two of us.


You are toppling

through my arms like silk.

I am begging you

to split me open

before my words

silence the choir of my heart.

We are connected. Scar to scar,

an entire constellation of us.


You are sitting in front of me

with your eyes partially closed.

I am counting your eyelashes

as if they were the flower petals.

Does he love me yes or no?

We are holding hands

in a silent prayer and there is nothing

to anchor us but our commitment

to each other.
