some of my favorite moments
that i’ve spent on this earth
are when your lips are tracing
my collarbone
and your hair is in my fist
when my legs are wrapped
around your waist
pulling you impossibly close
but needing you closer still
or when we’re lying
face to face
both of my hands wrapped around
the one of yours
that is cupping my cheek
the comfortable silence between us
speaking volumes of
unspeakable things
i guess it’s harder than i thought
to pick a favorite
but the only thing they have in
common, baby
is you
