I wanna fall asleep with my face nestled into the back of your neck
Like the space between your shoulder and head was carved out for me
I wanna wake up next to you and say “good morning” to every inch of your body
Like I’m paying homage to the melanin passed down from your ancestors
I wanna stare into your eyes and wonder what it’s like in your mind
Like watching a movie for the first time, not wanting it to end
I wanna silhouette you with my love and protection
Like a safe space where you are free to exist exactly as you choose.
