you,
touch my skin and I burn
with the warmth of a sun larger
and more fierce than the
milky way’s own

you,
the topography of your
body landscapes beneath my
pale fingertips and I tremble
like your own personal
fault line

you,
veins cascading into mine
by shared heartbeat like
a waterfall melting
into a river

you,
with water-colored eyes
draping over me like a
toned blue sea billowing
over the sand of
my body

you,
a marvel

you,
my eighth wonder of the
world colliding into me and
forming a new galaxy
we can call our
home

you,
