before you there was an incessant need to be touched
but for no longer than the time it took to touch, sweat, and moan
and never by the same hands twice;
for vacancies to be filled
and to never have an empty bed when sleep finally came.

when i found you it was dark and i was drunk.
it wasn't a story built for the centuries,
but we will be the lovers whose names are remembered for the years to come,
tied and woven in song and into the bodies of trees, we will be so in love
that the angels above will cry in jealousy because in my haze,
heavy and raw and with everything burning inside me, i'm afraid i fell in love that night.

being against you was not enough
i needed you on me-in me-everywhere i turned you needed to be there
no space between my body and yours no air
just skin and skin and skin and
movements rough enough to catch soft sweaters like dry elbows

i needed you to be so entwined with me that we breathed in sync.
our hearts opened and closed in a symphony, chords not harmonies, they were the same.
i needed a conductor to take your ticket from your hands and tell you
don't go back. what you've been looking for is where you already are.
i needed you to curve around me so i could curve into you.

what i needed was something worth having-

what i needed
was you.
you.

I am so glad you're in love, not only because I'm happy for you but because if the exquisite poetry it produces XD I especially love everything after "being against you was not enough."

it makes me extraordinarily uncomfortable because i don't like feelings, especially when i can't gauge their depth. it's very scary

feelings are by necessity irrational.
