i can feel your fingertips 
trailing down my shoulder,
losing themselves in the 
freckled constellations that 
paint my arms in 
a warm afternoon glow,
now
they’re drawing 
infinite circles into the 
hollows of my palms as 
I stare into the infinite 
circles of your hazel eyes. 

they savagely hold me captive, 
i don’t dare move as they 
daringly trace the outline of 
my lips, 
painstakingly marking 
every last weathered crack and line;
i feel an immovable heat 
as the hazel fades into 
an intricate kaleidoscope of   
browns, golds, and greens. 

your fingertips. 
they’re pressed against mine 
as we're pressed against
time,
feverish and wild 
lips collide in hopeless
efforts to satiate 
a feeling of hunger
that hides in the 
folds of our ripped jeans. 

fuck. 

my fingertips 
press into cold, desperate glass,
frustration streams down 
my cheeks in indignant 
reserve;
a feeling of 
hunger growls 
to life deep in the hollows 
of my chest as
it heaves, 
needy and inconsolable—
the only relief
for a creature so tortured, 
as the selfish touch of
phantom fingertips 
slowly start 
to trail down my shoulder
once again.
