i hope you know

i've been thinking about the way you look from below
your head is tilted down but your eyes are raised to meet mine
your forearms on either side of my chest, holding you up
as you close the space between us

your hands tangle in my hair as you lower your face to mine
our legs are already intertwined, mine wrapping around from the outside
first on your hips, then your thighs, and the backs of your knees
now the deeper, secret parts, now we're as close as close can be

i hope you know, you're they only one here
i hope you know there could not have been another

sometime later i prop myself up and i watch as you sleep
i am memorizing everything about you, shamelessly
the curl by your eye, the heavy heat of your leg over mine
i am sure this is right

when i get back from getting up i shrug out of your shirt
you wake as the cloth hits the floor
you give a sleepy smile and pull me down into your arms
and i am home

i hope you know you're the only one here
i hope you know there could not have been another


listen
