I want to kiss you

Like they do in the movies

Full of anguish and yearning

Yet sweet and slow

I want the taste of you

Left on my tongue

Long after it’s over

I want to feel

Love and sentiment

Dripping and smothered

Between two different worlds

And two different minds

I want to see

Light clouds

From warm breaths

With my eyes half-closed

I want our arms

Wrapped around each other

My fingers tracing

The fine hairs

At the nape of your neck
