you feel like the deepest inhale i will ever take
filling my lungs entirely, deeply, intentionally
a reminder of how much life i have to live and how much tenderness i have to offer
the way you cradle your hand against my face, and whisper i love you
that is what i want the universe to reverberate even when we are gone

let’s let our souls be free from wounds
allow them to wrap around each other
however loosely or tightly we need
in the spiritual, emotional, physical translation
of our connection.
i promise it doesn’t have to look like
yesterday or tomorrow
the past or the future
just today, here, now, present
that is perfectly good enough.

I used to remember
the way hearts beat at the same time.
It used to be clear,
and relentless in the way it came.
I think I must have
or at least felt its faintness like a clear sea.
It comes back in
but I feel a tsunami approaching.
