this is new
dragonfly guts &
i like being close to you,
but still a stranger.
i'd like to keep it this way
wear your old sweats and a tank-top to bed,
let you memorize every crease.
but remain skin surface safe.
i don't want to remind you
of someone you had,
someone you've been wanting to find.
i want to be the last thing you sigh over,
and the first thing on your mind.
this is old & familiar,
but i swear this time it will be different.
