Imagery for Unrequited Love
Your body feels like a different kind of home. The smooth skin of your neck and the rise of your adam’s apple and how it gushes and spreads wide into your broad firm shoulders, your clavicles like plunge pools. Your hard firm muscles and tendons and how they wrap around your bones like thick, tight vines. Your nose curves out and your distinct philtrum leads me to your lips pink and ready for mine, the valley of your chest, almost as if it was worn down by my head being placed their so often. Familiar. Safe. Mine.
