close

it takes a few blinks
typically
to orientate
yourself
on the couch
when the tv screen is black
but not off
it casts an almost light
you hear it
or feel it
nearby energy
a rustling
under the blanket
close
but
moving closer
you don’t think
one of newton’s laws is
bodies at rest
but aching
find each other
in limbo light
however
accidentally
but not
clear
who moved first
hand
to
hand
the squeezed invitation
resisting
half-heartedly
pounding
out
secrets
told in morse code
are the best ones
that
pull you closer
telling you
it’s never
fuck
it’s never
too dark
for lips to find lips
soft
hungry
time
does a funny thing
when
your breath catches
your hands sliding down
you’ve always felt
cotton
is the best
appetizer
kisses won’t lie
telling you
we’re all nerve endings
in the dark
you
can’t stop
skin
on
skin
on
fire
seems like a strange
place
for a trail
of goosebumps
leading the way
home
before
the sun rises
enough
to
force
real life
to
send scurrying
questions
daylight
wouldn’t approve
