So Much, So Little

I love you so much
Because I understand you
So little

I want you to breathe me in
So I can travel through your mouth
And figure out how your sighs
Make that soft sound
So full of thought and consideration
Seriously – how do you do it?

I want to fill your lungs
So I can hug your heart close and tight
And see what it is that makes it –
Skip – a – beat –
Or slow…way…down…nice
Orspeedupandpoundhard.

I want to run through your veins
To feel what makes your blood boil
And your pulse race
And your body temperature rise
Before it turns cold

I want to embrace your infrastructure
The bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments
So I can experience what holds you together
Because you're all that keeps me
From falling apart.

I want to vacation in your brain
Relax in your mind
To observe the world as you do
Comprehend how it works
Ride the pathways of neurons
Traverse the bridges between sensors
Follow the linking system
Until your very end

As much as I want to do all of these things
I don't want to know, almost
Because your mystery is wonderful
And not being able to understand
Makes it kind of sort of magical, in a way

You never cease to amaze me.
