Epilogue

Know what I want right now? You lying next to me. Tired afterthoughts. Sleepy. Brown eyes staring at me. Hair between my fingers. More kisses. More skin. I want the part after the loving where I will look at you and thank goodness for having a body so you can touch me. I want the moist lethargic you as you stumble out of bed to clean up. I want your weight as the bed creaks when you step back in. Sleepier lovelier. I want your thick fingers fighting my hair and giving up. Your stubble finding my nuque. I want skin and flesh and your smell. I want to claim your body. This is for me.
