It Has Always Been This Way

I call you to me,

breathlessly,

truly divine, you are,

I thought.

With a word,

contained in a

whisper,

the two of us giggling,

inundated with

the glee

of a moments

passing.

We only maintain ourselves

separately,

together,

as one being.

It is a secret we share

always.

Looking around us

as if we don’t know

what it is,

only,

we do.

We are mistaken,

often,

yet we do not

mind.

No one understands

how we can be

one person,

only two bodies,

in orbit

around

each other’s

hearts.

    this one is really nice,
    the flow and language really come together.

    My fave part:

    “With a word
    contained in a whisper”

    The sounds of the line and idea/image of the whisper being an actual vessel for the word both caught me
    O
