You Can Have My Arms, Here, Take Them

September 9, 2010

everyone i love is becoming a fragile fish falling off my dresser

everyone i love is crumpled at the bottom of my closet when i’m ready to look at it again

everyone i love ignores the stains on the comforter

everyone i love comes with multiple layers of meaning when done well

everyone i love dancing in an upstairs apartment, praying to air

everyone i love kisses the salt off my legs

everyone i love is still up when i fall asleep and i know it and i worry and i know it

everyone i love will break off into the ocean

everyone i love will touch foreheads

everyone i love knows by the end
