and ours

i want you

to gently take my heels off, one at a time.

i want your chest

under my head and i want to feel it rise
and fall

i want you
to whisper
an inch from my lips

i want you to whisper
all of the things you feel. i want to
love you
back. to feel desperate within it,

held still by the thick tension between us. fragile and beautiful and ours.
