My mind was a whirlwind of
So many contradicting emotions
At the same time, that
I felt chaos consuming me.
Baffled and clear,
Bewildered and lucid,
My thoughts were ambiguous and coherent –
Confusion was the only note the voices
In my head could reach, and
I felt I was in the corner,
I felt I was in the spotlight.
We kissed last night –
You and I,
Your heavy breath mingled with
My exasperated one,
Marking the silhouette of my mouth.
With every stroke of your tongue
Against mine, I kept losing
My ground, and
All the nerves in my body and
All the enunciations in my mind
Made me question if it was just
Our lips that met,
Or more?

You would call me a fool for
Making fun of his messy hair,
His huge hands, his raspy voice,
The way he rolls his eyes and
How his shoe size can fit an
Entire town, and his broad back,
But the truth is
I like it – all of it, because
I can ruffle his messy hair
Any time, shamelessly.
His hands are just the right size
For me to envelope mine
Through them;
Or he could do the same.
His raspy voice is a weakness for
It compliments my squeaky one,
Oh, and how a little giggle escapes
His mouth each time he playfully
Rolls his eyes at me.
I like that I can hide my feet in
His shoes to keep them warm and
Then put them away
Just to spend a little more time
With him, and
I don’t mind his broad back
Because I could always climb
On it, or hide behind it;
My own safe place.
I like him for the way these
Fragments move together to
Make him who he is, and
How I like him for this,
Hoping the feeling is mutual.

You’re the wave that comes crashing
Against my shore, and knocks down
My castle of sand.
You’re so destructive.

You’re the beautiful flower with
The hidden thorns, and rough petals
That scratch my skin.
You’re so painful.

You’re the madness that touches
The deep ends of sanity, and push me
Into a trance.
You’re so eccentric.

It is one of those moments when the time seems to freeze and all that is moving is your past. You shut your eyes and float in the sea of tranquility, get touched by the edges of a storm.

In those flashes, you see everything you’ve ever felt, everything you’ve denied. You experience, in those moments, the joy of uniting, the pain of separating. The colors of smiling, the tingles of sadness. The magic of loving, the depth of letting go.

And you know, the end is here. You feel the embrace of life and the kiss of death. And you know, again, the end has come. And you feel compete.
