*** with you is a workout. Quick breaths and heavy heartbeats. I love your sweat and the way it makes your skin stick to mine.
*** with you is a hurricane violent winds strong enough I’d blow away if I didn’t grip the anchor of your hips. I count seconds between the lightning in your smile and the thunder of your heartbeat to know how close you are. It is neuroscience. Can you see the action potential jump up the dendrites of my fingers when I touch you?
It is a fistfight it might end with bruises and ****** lips but it’s worth it for the adrenaline rush behind the upper cut. Later I can’t stop tonguing the cut on the inside of my mouth. I like the way you sting.
*** with you is a wrinkle in time. It’s the bottom of the ninth 2 outs, bases loaded and time. just. stops.
It’s a SWAT team’s flash bang. The explosion leaves me dazed, and I can’t hear anything but my pulse. It’s any number of drugs. Your tongue tastes like moonshine My body swirls and my mouth rounds hollow around the smoke in your kisses. *** with you is using all seven tiles in Scrabble and landing on a triple word score. For a moment, I am invincible.
It is plate tectonics. My body dips into the magma of the negative space between your hips, my favorite subduction zone.
*** with you is a math problem It’s complicated and it takes patience but there’s not a word for the satisfaction when my fingers draw the last equal sign and the red pen of your body is silenced.
*** with you is like sparklers. I want to write our names in fire.
