I want to press my forehead against yours.
I want to place my hand beneath your ear.
I want our scared and ragged air to mix upon our lips.
I want to tuck beneath your arm.
I want to fold myself into you.
I want our panicked hearts beating to calm.
I want to wrap your arms around me.
I want to release the weight of these worries.
I want you to wring them from my frame.
I want to pull you closer in the night.
I want to whisper my love into your chest.
Don’t give up on me just yet.
