you are like white wine,
with salmon and tartar sauce on the side.
your tongue is so warm,
you’re so sweet.
two big globes look at me and kiss me
with pupils dilated,
and are blue like the ocean.
so you take my hand on the train,
and pull me into your chest to sleep.
you are strong, stable with a lottery winning smile,
and nice hands.
hold me tight while i sleep,
whisper sweet somethings in my ear,
and tell me you think i’m so pretty.
well, i think you’re an angel,
i think you’re a jewel.
and, we were dancing in the rain,
his hair was wet and his eyes were gray.
as gray as the thunder clouds and gray as the fog.
and I was glued to his body, our eyes kissed,
and our tongues screamed:
take me home, you are my home.
warring with my body because you are not the one
I should be with, but I can't help it.
but I can't complain because no one this beautiful
has ever loved me.
you are my church,
you are my kingdom hall,
you are my place of worship.
i pray that we stay together,
on every bead that is on this elastic.
you're like my incense and my candle light --
smiling lightens up this room,
adding a never before smelled aroma.
my god, you've got me daisy eyed,
and by god you are the holiest thing i've ever seen --
divinity in its purest form.
he presses his forehead against mine,
lips barely touching, noses poking.
he has me starry-eyed and he calls me sunshine
and touches me like a violet touching a morning glory.
when the two mix you get a splendor of lust and love.
my september third born, morning glory smelling,
sapphire looking, roasted beet tasting, sweet touching,
virgo honey loving man.
i just gotta put this out there,
don't wanna put myself out there:
and you are so distant, there's a six foot ruler between us,
and to you that far is too close
and close isn't close enough to me.
and i was lonely until i met you
and you let me in after all the persuasion --
i don't wanna be a loner,
i don't wanna be alone.
close this space, this distance, this difference.
