anatomy of you

I see you
the eyes of your soul
the smile in your eyes
the light in your smile
lightly tracing
over
every inch of you
every
soft
curvature of skin
skin to skin
interlaced fingers
hand to hold
lips to back
the small of your back
the back of your neck
every bump and scar
crease and fold

I have memorized them all

I know you
familiar warmth
gravitational pull
comfortable silence
the laugh
the whisper
the promise
the voice that calls me home

opposites

we say yes when we mean no
we say no thanks when we wanna go
we say I’m fine when we aren’t okay
we say I’m busy when we wanna play
we say How are you? when it really doesn’t matter
we say You look great! when you’ve gotten fatter
we say That’s so interesting when really it isn’t
or Keep in touch! but prefer the distance

humans are the most curious beings
nothing is ever what it seems
why can’t we just say what we really mean?
