"I'm well acquainted with villains that live in my head."

Your head
On my chest,
Listening to
My hummingbird heart,
Our fingers laced together,
Warm against
Each other’s palms.
Smoothing down
Your hair,
Kissing your
I never knew an hour
Could pass by so fast.
And when time caught up to us
As I held you,
Watching the
Shimmer by,
Leaves carried
Like boats.
Away and out of view.
And then,
Everything happened at once.
Something I wanted
But knew receiving
Would ruin our agreement
To go slow. And then
Your lips
Were on mine
And my heart decided
That it wanted
To be a leaf in the creek
And flow away
From me
And take residence
In you.
For a brief moment
There was nothing
But you
And me
And the blanket
Under my back,
And then we returned.
And I smiled,
Kissing you again
As heat filled every
Cavity of my being,
Eventually falling back
And feeling my insides
Turn to liquid.
I knew it to be true,
Along with another fact:
I wouldn’t trust
Anyone else with
My hummingbird heart.
