I want, and I want. I have learnt
of your body, and the way she
co-exists with mine. My tongue,
my pesky mind. My over eager
hand, my overthink. Even now
I dream of home ownership,
and then some. Maybe marriage?
Maybe a distant vision, like a
neighbour’s cat clawing at a window.
Or that one time we sat at a drive-through
and a golden retriever sped past us in a sedan.
I wonder how they’re doing now, ages later?
Time passes too slowly until I’m
with you, then it’s already gone.
We were friends, now we’re in love.
Despite the cliches, I will hold
your heart gently within my palms.
I will carry you anywhere and everywhere.
