self harm

maybe I just wanted
to feel your soft lips
against my fingertips,
gentle strokes,
reaching for your neck

maybe I just wanted
to feel your body
against mine
intimate moves
reaching for your kiss

maybe I just wanted
to feel your heart
beating beneath mine
as I whisper in your ear
all the things I’d like to do to you
and all the things I’d like to show you

the way I’d like to unwrap
not only your clothes
but your body too
all the way down to your heart
piece b piece
until we beat as one
like we’re deadly in love
