Chest to chest, cheek to cheek
I see that spark in your eye
that let’s me know you’re up to no good.
The corner of your lips hold a secret
that I want to coax out with the tip of my tongue.
Your fingers trace up my spine.
You taste so good I can’t help but sink
my teeth into you.
I look at the waves crashing
the shore and picture my hips rolling into yours.
When were together time gets measured in kisses
and there’s never enough of either.
Kiss me overlooking the bay
Kiss me in the rain
Kiss my hand
Open my car door
Whisper I missed you into my hair
Hold me tight
Ask about my family
Listen closely to my fears and insecurities
Spark passion into my future
Tenderly handle every piece of myself I hand to you
I say I miss you
but it’s not exactly what I mean.
Yes I do miss the way the corner of your lips smile
and those ridiculous jokes you love telling
But I’ve begun to use those words as a placeholder.
I mean more than I miss you while you’re gone
My heart aches for you even while you stand right before me.
‘I love you’ is on the tip of my tongue
but fear holds a hand over my mouth
and I settle for ‘I miss you’ yet another time.
We kiss, we laugh
I dive deep into your soul
you lay your head on my chest
and crack me open so I ache for you.
You feel so familiar like our souls have met before.
Perhaps even fell in love like we’re doing now
with gentle hands, shared breathe, and vulnerable whispers.
You fall asleep dreaming of me in your bed and your lips on my neck
Our dreams must have collided over space
Because I woke up dreaming of you in my bed and my lips on your neck.
Made for each other, our bodies mold into each other becoming one.
Safe and secure, my heart yearns to call you home tonight
I worry that my eagerness might scare you away
that I’ll jinx us by believing in a future so blindly
or play the fool once again, falling alone
ignoring any rough waters saying I should have known
better by now, but I’m willing to make a deal.
I’ll be a fool for you if you’ll be the same for me
Trust in me, and us, to expose every depth of you.
Swim in me and my waves of acceptance will gently carry you.
I will let your light explore every darkness I fear lurks within me.
I’ll be home to you and you’ll be home to me.
I know you hide parts of yourself from me
deep down at the bottom of a bottle
The ones you find unlovable and ugly
But those are the ones I want to see the most.
Don’t drown your monsters out
Trust me to hold your vulnerability gently
I will not let it shatter like a beer bottle hitting concrete.
