I must have always
been made for you:
today, I found the
curve of your smile
in the inside of my ribcage,
right next to my heart
that’s always been carved
with your name.

She wears her I love you
in between the syllables of my name,
in the way her arms tangle
around my body while we sleep,
baked between the berries
of the pie she made me
and in each smile and gentle kiss
she gives me.

As I tangle my legs in empty sheets,
I know two things:
that this bed seems vast
without you in it,
that my skin aches for your hands
without you near it.

I’ll never stop choosing you.
Each morning,
when the morning light washes over
your softly breathing body,
I still can’t resist tracing
infinity signs into your shoulder blade
and telling your subconscious
that I love you,
hoping my fingertips seal in a promise
that sinks into your bones
so that I am as permanent in your body,
as you are in mine.
