All I Need

Smiling warmth
Between rows
Of books,
Stories being told
As ours unravel.

I pulled you
To me,
My grin
Turning evil
As I pressed
Small kisses
To your neck.

Blooming heat
Curling under
My collar bones,
Forcing me farther,

Kissing you softly,
Our tongues
Dancing with
The heat
Of our cheeks
Into one,
Our eyes closed
In a desperate need
For more.

Trailing kisses
Down your jaw,
Back to your neck.
Hovering over
Your pulse,
Sizzling sparks
Through my own.

“I can feel
Your heartbeat,”
I murmured,
Tasting your skin,
Your pule.
Feeling you

“I’m so
Getting you
Back for this,”
You breathed.

I laughed softly.
“Of course
You are,”
I whispered,
More kisses
Hot wax stamps
On your warm

Fighting primal
Our bodies
Pressed together,
Fire flickering
Inside my lungs.

My heart throbbing
With lava red blood
And burning love
As it erupted
From my mind
To my lips,
My fingertips
Racing across
The screen
Of a phone
In the darkness,
Cold without
You there.

Into myself
Under velvet sheets,
And yet so cold
Without you there.

Phantom arms
Holding me,
Mimicking the future.

An exasperated sigh
In the quiet,
Collar bones sinking
Without the simmering
Excitement supporting them.

Absorbing my
Torso, eating
At my sanity,
Controlling my thoughts.

Your dorky smile,
Me calling you
A nerd
I was too shy
To say, “I love you.”

The way our footsteps
Orbit each other
Like twin suns
As we walk
Side by side,
My nervousness
Crackling in
The air.

Silent screams
Spewing fire
In the back of
My throat
As I wait
For time to pass
In a timeless place.

Aching to see you,
Even if it’s
For a second.

And a second
Is all I need.

Hi Logan! How have you been? (it's Katie.) I miss you. What I got from this was an amazing experience. It was written very well but... Are you not able to see him anymore :'( The last few lines kind of hinted at that. I hope we can talk sometime in the near future, I miss that so much! Have a good day, Logan.

We actually broke up. Long story, I'll tell you later.
