Let me stay here forever

Depleted, lethargic, content.

Side-by-side we sit. Feet extended, like a pair of butterfly lovers.

Fingers stretch and seek; Dancing a graceful leap.

My hand entwines in yours.

Flesh and bones. Sweet, silent reciprocation.

Reposing my head on the round bend of your shoulder;

My nose seeks out your distinctive scent.

It is not your face I remember but the curve of your neck, and the jut of a collarbone.

Forever ingrained in my memory.

A brief quiescence.

You’ve rendered me undone.
