do you?

do you know
that i cannot breathe
when you brush the stray strand of hair
behind my ear
just that single gesture
the one you probably don’t even realize you do
steals my exhales

and do you realize
that when you spin me around
pulling my back to your chest
the whole fucking world
stops turning
as your hands reach around me
for my skin

have you noticed
that nothing exists
beyond your moans and my gasps
and your fingers
that are lifting my skirt
for what is hidden beneath delicate fabric
for that which is
