drowning

i remember,
i know, how you smell
just inside of your neck
on your chest, your jaw
i close my eyes and
drown in your fragrance

i remember,
i know how your stubble
feels sexy, rough, prickly
against my skin
and how your breathing
relaxes, when you’re
in my arms

i remember,
i know how your eyelashes
brush against my cheeks
your face lights up
when you smile
you close your eyes

i remember,
i know when i’m kissing
your abs, veins raise up
on your arms
biceps feel tort
when you’re holding
me down

i remember,
i know how we giggle
and laugh when we playfight
lying in your arms
cuddled tight against
your chest

i remember,
i know if you’re too hot
when you’re sleeping
you rest your hand
on my hand just
so you still stay
touching me

i remember,
i know how we weave
and twist and wind
our legs and feet
around each others
when we are sleeping

i remember,
i know your skin is on fire
and you still hold me
like i’m your
whole world
i miss your everything
i wish you were here

  2. Just happened to stumble into your blog and read your poem, glad I did – thought you did a terrific job showing how the best moments now can cause the worst pain in the future, but they are so worth it!
