I want to sit in the folds of your brain
and reside in the veins of your heart
feel the warmth that flows within you
and know what your vision calls art
I want to be your finger tips
and sense what gives you chills
be the hairs on the back of your neck
that quivers at…
I hoarded your name in my mouth for months.
I’ve been saving so many words for you.
My throat is a beehive pitched into the river. Look!
Look how long my love can hold its breath."
— Sierra DeMulder, from “Your Love Finds Its Way Back” (via weissewiese)
You might be sitting with him at the kitchen table drinking coffee from mismatched mugs and saying nothing because sometimes saying nothing is the best thing to say. He’s miles away, and you’re thinking you should take a shower or fix your hair or at least brush your teeth because you feel dirty and self-conscious. You wish the sun weren’t so bright on your face and you wish there was something other than corn flakes for breakfast so your stomach won’t start making hideous noises. You’re about to open your mouth and say something to break the silence, but he speaks first. He tilts his head slightly and says:
“You make me really happy.”
And you will agree he does, too."
