take it

take everything

because that’s the only way

I know how to give

I don’t touch

I devour

so run now

if you don’t want it all

I have too much love to give

and a heart that’s much too big to

ever stop me.

My Favorite Morning Kiss

Got you on my skin
Your taste on my tongue
Your breath in my lungs
Your heart, here
keeping time with mine

Our legs wrapped like twine
I’ve got much love left to give
So I watch you sleep
Feel your lips with bruised fingertips
Until I memorize your face
Burn the picture of you on my brain

Darling, it’s amazing
Who you’ve made of me
Who you make me want to be
And how quickly you’re becoming my life’s melody;
My favorite morning kiss.
