There is nothing discreet about this love -
it hangs on my chest,
a defiant noise -
the scent of something luscious
and viscous
stretched between your hips.
Your back arches
in a way only Psyche can feel.
You wear it
in a cheap red dress
that comes apart like midsummer
in my hands
as we flaunt the stars,
the stones under our skin
stretching the bed frame
till we crack.
And I fill you up,
your arms a battle
raging in the waning lies
of morning.
For Victoria...

You will always be the heavy warmth of winter hearth settling in my bones and spreading out against the expanse of my skin.

When I write anything remotely eloquent there is always your lingering presence between each line. Now and forever.

This is so beautiful. It's flawless and flows really well. The opening lines are a kicker and the whole thing just sounds really sweet. Nice work :)
