flying hearts in my eyes, the biggest baddest best surprise.

this is new
dragonfly guts &
trembling lips/hips/fingertips.

i like being close to you,
but still a stranger.

i'd like to keep it this way
for years.

wear your old sweats and a tank-top to bed,

let you memorize every crease.
every scent.

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.
