You skimmed your hand over my leg

lightly, gently, just your fingertips,

slightly above my knee.

I absentmindedly wondered if I should push it away.

It wasn’t what I wanted.

but then before I could respond

your fingers found mine

and entangled themselves between mine,

demanding space not only between my fingers

but in the crevices of my heart too.
