overflowing with love
now here I am
trying to pull myself from this drought
I miss drowning
I’m trying to remember what it was like
i miss myself.
the smell when i got out of the shower
looking in the mirror and smiling
telling people i love them
when did being myself become something that wasn’t important anymore?
where did i leave myself?
my life has been a drought
spent waiting for a storm.
to fix me
and bring life.
now here you are,
showering me with love.
when will I be okay again?
trying to find who I am
each ventricle in the heart
is supposed to do a job
but never mix their contents.
we form a heart.
filled with love, blood, and life.
but we are never allowed to mix.
we are in rhythm
separate we are together.
I wish more than anything that we could mix.
you make me want to kiss one thousand
so that maybe for a split second
i could forget how much i love you.
but why would i give myself up?
you are all i want.
soft yellow glow
you give to me
you are here forever
waiting to welcome me
you are where i belong
dripping in your love
i find myself licking each finger
and savoring the sweetness.
your approval tastes like chamomile,
blackberries, and melted icecream.
the taste of you is even sweeter.
to be here
drenched in your affection
is the most saccharine dream
i could ever hope to imagine.
