From the way you walk

I knew you were something,

I didn’t know

how much you can move me,

how I can make you move

and breathe

and look

and talk like that.


Tastes like magic-

eyes closed

heart crossed

love wide open


I can’t stop

holding you,

missing your touch when you move an inch,

begging for you to be part of me

let me steal a piece of your words

so I can taste your need again.


The world fits back together

when we pull each other

up this slope,

I want all of you,

I can’t tell where I end

and you begin.


It’s like I didn’t know I had skin

before you.
