you're smooth, you know
all soft skin and and long fingers,
cupping my cranium and sliding through
the tendrils of my hair

everything about you screams dangerous,
the way your smile starts--
languid and lazy because
your lips speak in secrets
passed through dry presses of mouths and
shaky exhales

you're ineffable,
the way your chin tips up
just so
to show the expansion of your neck,
the littering of freckles that create
constellations and desire

i'd trace the lines of your body
with careful and practiced touches,
i'd turn you into poetry--
transform your lungs into lyrics
your ribs into rhymes,
your tongue into text and
your spine into something more
i'd fall in love with you and
you'd never die

you're smooth, you know
like the insides of thighs and
the slopes over hips
but
my heart is yours--
i'll give it to you, if you want it
you're just going to have to pay it back
with interest
lapsus calami (n) - [a slip of the pen.]

This is a well-deserved DLD. Congrats on it, by the way!
I love this poem so much, I wish I could favorite it over and over again. And I don't say that about too many poems here on dA. :love:
