something that spells out like the texture of your skin, counts like the number of times a day you smile at me, like it's for me, or because of me
you said you liked laughter, so i want something that sounds like that, only it’s yours and mine, sewn together like a patchwork quilt
i want you like clean air and cold water,
i want you like sunlight, like sex, like surrender
i want you inside of me but that seems crass to say because i also want you beside me, behind me, in front of me. with me. in whatever way i can get it.
i’m naive that’s true but im also someone who hates the word no
i want you to be a yes
please say yes
