96 (who?)
you want to fall in love
hard enough to break your bones and
lighten your feet
lighten your heart
so softly that the butterflies you feel
pattering with their gossamer wings
beneath the cage of your ribs
can escape;
and the breath,
blue in the summer,
can kiss you and the monarchs
as sweetly as your love
and her lips.

you dream of them at night.
silken like clean bedsheets,
familiar as your favourite chair
when you curl up with
a mug of herbal tea.
you feel at home
with her body curled in yours,
only able to sleep
with her skin under your fingers
scenting the blankets
with something no perfume
could ever mirror.

you write love letters
in biology
love poems
in economics
you dream emptily
unless she is there.

you want to fall in love
the way the gods drink ambrosia,
you want to treat her
better than their nectar,
sweeter than honeybees
and their summer-sticky feet.

you want a love beyond poetry,
from winter flurries
to springtime rosebuds
to summer sweet lemonade
to autumnal red leaves underfood.
you want to make love
by frosted windows;
to the sound of once-dormant birds;
in the humidity of the july sun's haze;
after a cup of warm apple cider.

you want to fall in endlessly
in an endless love.

one day you will wake,
i promise
and the want will be yours
it will be years dismissed,
and the empty pillow you've long known beside you
will carry the perfumed hair
of your sleeping lover,
forever after.
legit just started writing during my econ class

Wow, this is amazing (and I'm not a huge fan of poetry, so this says a lot). The descriptions are very intense. Hanging onto this so I can read it again later.
