I Wish We Were Closer

by fyarlgiles


In my dream, you were naked–

I think.

–Your breasts and lips were drenched

in the scent of me and

I was

all over you.

At first it made you feel yellow

and new-

like a champagne flower

bubbling in the sunshine

— and then you were angry at me

for reflecting all the mean holes

in your prettyheart
