"There are limitations and there are protocols and I’ve been warned that I’m not supposed to threaten or beg for pieces of someone’s soul."

Richard Siken, ‘The Long and Short of It

"My mother told me I had a chameleon soul, no moral compass pointing due north, no fixed personality; just an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean" -unknown

You're so warm
and a little sweatier than is comfortable
but when I put my head on your stomach
it's easy to forget

except your breathing
up and down
matching mine
breath to breath

when you talk
I can feel the vibrations
and I can hear your voice
and it's like a lullaby
lulling me to sleep

I have your hand in mine
resting on my leg
a slight pressure
but it's just so comforting
I don't ever want to let you go

my other hand I bring to your face
touch your cheek
rough and soft
all at the same time
what an odd combination
but it fits you

you bite my finger
I bring your hand to my lips
brush my lips over our hands
don't ever let me go

can we stay like this all day
all night
just don't move until we have to go to school
let me sleep next to you

let me run my fingers through your hair
and will you just hold me
as tight as you can
I don't care if I breathe

warmth & happiness & laughter & peace
and it's all because
of you
