the star-soaked stains
that covered our nudity
gives way at last
to a tequila sunrise,
so low in the sky;

it's still bright enough
to sting my eyes,
and yet i can't bring myself
to hate it.

your body next to mine,
every effort is made
to move a heavy limb
closer
because any space
we have
is space i don't want.

i am sometimes humbled
by my feelings,
the way they swell
in my throat
just how the ocean
tastes the shore.

there is always something new
to find hidden in my heart,
summoned by my words,
or the salt of your skin
wearing like wind on shale
against mine.

i don't think i can ever tell you
i love you enough.

if i could, i would never get dressed
so that you could never be sad-
a rewind every time
my clothes touch the floor,
never anything but nude, not naked
because with you i can be bare
and unafraid;
i can let you see my entirety
and leave my arms uncrossed,
i can let you in
and not fear that you will break me,
or force my inner things out.

i can love you with open arms
and my lips
wrapped around every inch of you,
staking claims for myself
wherever they touch;
i can love you,
unreserved,
unbridled,
and know that the heat that our skin,
soaked in the light once given off
by the stars we wear,
will be enough to keep us warm
even when wars
battle to
keep us
apart.
and you fell asleep while i whispered

-

that actually happened, how horrific is that

This is the first time a poem has ever brought me to tears.
"with you I can be bare and unafraid"

This is how I feel and I want to tell him I love him but i'm afraid he doesn't want to hear it and/or will freak out. And it sucks that I love this amazing person I will have to leave soon, so maybe it's better I don't tell him anyway. I'm sorry for dumping my feelings into this comment; this is a wonderful poem and it makes me feel things I don't want to.
