hipbone tattoo

moon girl 
with your heart 
bleeding out your chest
a hipbone tattoo that 
you play, an unrest
 
god, i love your lips
and their pink silkiness and
 
i love your laugh and the voice
that comes with it
 
and girl, if people were candles
you’d be a wildfire
and i don’t speak out of my mouth
i speak out of my heart that
remembers every time we kissed
in the drunk midnight
and loved every minute of it
  
and i want to paint your moans
far across the ceiling 
and make you forget the sadness 
of sunday mornings
   
i hope we can kiss each other’s pain away i hope
we can save this hurt
from coming for us
i hope
 
you forget 
that i love you
in the morning.
