her turn

LOVE THAT FELT LIKE MAGIC

cheeky smile
sparkly eyes
messy hair

I’ve seen it before

interlaced fingers
gentle hand strokes
nuzzling neck

I’ve felt it before

holding hands
touching hair
sweet kisses

I’ve been there before

soft whispers
breath in the ear
special musicĀ 

I’ve had that before

not so long ago
he made me love him
with the same little tricks

not so long ago
he had eyes
for me only

not so long ago
he held me
like it’s the end of the world

not so long ago
his scent on my skin
in the morning

and his words:
I love you so much
so much

not anymore

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
