eyes
       wide and wanting.  
lips
       red and rushed.
      
reckless becomes my name
as you whisper carelessness in my ear-

you are everything i have ever wanted and more.

hands
cold and burning me everywhere you go,
‘can i see?’
and i would like to say yesnoyesno because that is what i feel but i stare at you instead with

eyes
       wide and wanting and where will this go?
and you turn me around and around and we are moving now, quicker than the stars on the edge of the universe.
and the universe is only one word today,
        
         you.

and you
        are next to me with your
lips
       all red and raw and perfect
and i want to ask if you really love me
but i don’t want to ruin this.
      
we
     are the curious youth,
drunk on the light of the moon against our arms
and adorned with the fascination of
skin on skin
and kisses returned
and a timeless embrace because

yes
     we don't know what we’re doing but
no
     i don’t want anything else.
