i wish i could bottle your kisses
and set them on the ledge by my sink
and mist myself with your glorious essence
whenever i get tired and parched.
you can be the wave of joy that crashes over me
you can be the smell of coconut and sunshine and beads of sweat on my forehead
you can be that feeling of surrendered peace after a day of praying to the beach.
when i see you, touch you, taste you
my entire being lights up like a solar flare
my tight knots and sad parts exhale
you soothe me like the most exquisite aloe vera
i can't even hide my feelings
so i won't try
i fucking love you
i want to bottle your kisses
so your glorious essence can be
at all times.
