We touch tears, cheeks flush,
trace patterns, map out country
as if we know the hills by heart,
and in the salty wet we made love
on your mother's rose patterned sheets,
your face soft and smelling
of rough oatmeal soap
and afternoons spent on the lawn
without shoes.

Eyes red and lids half shut,
we whispered into each other's necks
"Come closer,"
dismantling the divide between two,
that unimaginable space
where bodies hesitate to meet.

The distance between now
and some far off, abstract space
turn into melted skin
on sheets, sticky backs
and padded shoulder blades between
my fingers.

You shudder into me, hold my face
so the tears make a lake,
deep as the sea
but only half as wide,
decline to let me open my eyes
and see that no matter the
skin pressed against skin,
we're drifting father apart
than we'd ever noticed before.

We touched tears, cheeks flush
and I felt your eyelids, window dressings
only half drawn, I held you
by the heart,
arms wrapped as if there was no chance
of letting go.

I don't have anything to say that I didn't already say on your other piece, but I didn't want to leave without saying something. Emotive, heartbreaking, thoughtful.

your moleskine writings should be published as-is.

"that unimaginable space
where bodies hesitate to meet."

i understand that space.
