what i mean is

November 6, 2006  |  poetry
when i say i feel the
echo
of you
what i mean is
i feel you
in my skin
in my mouth
for hours
after

reverberating

when i say you are my
favorite
lover
what i mean is
i have never felt this
electricity
elasticity
strings of energy
between us

pulsing

when i say i’m
already
yours
what i mean is
i don’t want anyone else
i don’t want you
to want anyone else
i want to leave
my mark on you
suck on your skin
a little too long
bite your
tender
shoulder

a little too hard

when i say i
love
you
what i mean is
my heart is the bird’s nest
in which i live
and i am ready
to take flight
i am ready
to give my heart away
i believe deeply
in the tools
of relationships
and i want to use
everything i have
to figure out
everything you have
to watch your heart soar
to hold you up sometimes
to let you in

what i mean is
i want to help you
be the very best you
you can be
because i feel
more like myself
my best, highest self
around you
because i make
so much more sense
when i am with you

everything i am
has built to this moment
to this connection
everything i’ve learned
is so i can survive
thrive
succeed
in this
with you
for as long
as we possibly can
together

together
