Nuevos Hallazgos by .flo on Flickr.

Let us watch our stories change as we grow
a little paler. The edges of our eyes like mountains

with roots and veins pumping rain between the spaces
of our wrinkles. Let us call our children beautiful

even if they skinned their knees while running from
hide and seek countdowns, tuck them in at night

when they are too afraid to talk to us about bullies,
about a boy or a girl that makes their hands feel

gold and their hearts as anything but laced edges
of a shoreline with every heartbeat. I will make

coffee in the morning, you will burn fingertips
with every meal. Right now, this is a repeated apology

for every time we fight, for every time we are almost
at the point of throwing bombs at each other.

I am keeping you still, like you how you have kept me
after years of exploding into bits. Know, that your hands,

your heart that pumps in cages, bones and breath combined
is the first and last place I will ever call home.

"I don’t just want to take your breath away. I want to rip it from your mouth and keep it locked away between my teeth. You can only have it back if you kiss me again."

"That’s how you know you love someone, I guess. When you can’t experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too."

"I would love to say
that you
make me
weak in the knees
to be quite upfront
and completely
make my body
it has knees
at all.

"I look at you
and I think to myself,
I don’t mind this,
not one bit.

I can picture
late night walks
and breakfast in bed.
I can picture
the pillow fights
and making dinner
for our friends.
I can picture
chemistry without trying
and your body
on top of mine.

I can picture
all of that,
all the time.

"I never realized what a big deal that was. How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head."
