she smelled like
honeysuckle and night air
but tasted of whiskey and home
her heart ran wild in a way
that made him want to chase after it

her love
caused the universe to seem small
and her kisses
could make the sun shiver

that’s why
with a sky full of stars
he was looking at the
constellations of freckles
on her skin

she was his
