Your fingertips carve melodies into my songbird skin,
carbonizing my charcoal bones
so I can write sonnets on the sidewalk
with the ends of my chalky joints.

Oh how your grazing hands
hold me,
your touch
lingers.

Your propane eyes
burn me up,
your toothy smile
ties me down.

I hold my breath
because these moments are fragile
as they are finite,

and I close my eyes
because love shouldn't be this ugly
or this hard to find.

I may rework this later but I am melting in this heat, so this is this for now.

It isn't. You have not seen me in a year, so you don't know what its going to be like. You wrote another poem expressing how beautiful it would be. And I think that's what we will experience
