Sometimes I  want to open your mouth against mine and let you feel the way my words well up under my tongue;

I want to you to taste their smokiness and the way it scorches the throat and makes  both of us blush like ripe fruit,

and I want you to put your hand on my chest and feel the way my heartbeat echoes their meaning into the hollows of my collarbones; trace them down the veins of my arms until you feel their pulse in my fingertips—

listen, and you will hear them in my breath, warm and soft like a viola humming—

watch for the way they dance in my eyes, behind jade curtains and cumulonimbus, lit by an emerald spark in yours, and see the way they burn for you, and then,

when my words press against you as much as you against me,
when they kiss you as passionately,
when they could break your heart or melt it at an instant

you will know why I can’t hold them back.
There Are Three of Them.
Words, that is. 

This came out a tad racier than I originally expected, but I was sort of struck by sudden inspiration, and you never question where that takes you haha. 

That's why I haven't written in so long.

I promise I will be inspired again soon.
For now, enjoy this tidbit:

My only wish was martyrdom
So that my callow woes
Would not be told in turpitude
But in heroic prose.

Happy Monday!
