Word

Standard

I have felt every word

He writes.

I collect each letter;

Capital and lower case,

Exclamation points,

Question marks and all.

I put them in my heart.

Little folded notes of love and disdain.

Magic spells to remind

Me

I am not alone.

And I tiptoe and

Dance to his lyrics

When I am solitaire.

Sometimes

In the forest

Under the moonlight too,

With a passion free.

Just me

And his

Smile when I close my eyes.

Tingling and giddy I cannot help but

Fall into an endless spiral.

Down into the

Moss beneath my feet.

Secret bliss.

Those Nights

Standard

Those nights I snuck in.

We would be

Oh

So quiet.

And in the morning your dad would knock on your door,

Peeking in to wish you a good day.

You would lie on your side

So i could cuddle up

Oh

So close

(My heart beating so fast)

And melt

Myself into the blankets and mattress.

Into you,

So as not to be seen.

When we heard the front door shut and the car pull out of

The driveway

You would turn and grin

And begin again.

I remember the morning light

And your body

So warm.

Your strong hands

And thick hair.

I remember your

Lips and how you kissed me

Like

There was nothing but each moment

Together.

So young.

So simple the desires.

Body to body.

Heart to heart.

Eager and overflowing with

Something we could not explain.

I wonder

What do you remember?
