SO CLOSE

 

shhhhhh

can you hear it?

listen

it is not a cat purring

it is not a bird singing

it is not butterflies wings

 

shhhhh

can you hear it?

it’s my soul purring

it’s my blood singing

it’s my heart fluttering

 

ahhhhh

your ear pressed to my chest

so close I can breathe in the scent of your hair

your eyes closed, lips parted

 

shhhhh

let’s stay

this way

forever
