and let me take off your clothes
and strip you of the worries
from the day.
and let me wrap my arms around your shoulders
and bring you close enough to show you
that every ounce of me
every strand of hair
belongs to you.
and let me kiss you
I want to fill your mouth
with all the reasons why you belong to me.
why you will never want to belong
to anyone else.
and let me run my fingernails down your back
and draw a map of all the places you take me
I want my ears filled with your moans
reminding me that I just want to stay high
and on our laughter.
And when I whisper, “I love you”
it could never be in secrecy
but rather in the certainty
the certainty that you steal my voice
and leave me breathless…
