She let me play with her body.
I ran my fingers over her tummy
so I could watch the goosebumps rise
and nibbled at those skinny fingers
just to get a genuine expression
I ended shitty days
with my face buried in her hair
catching remnants of perfume
I would wrap her around me
her warmth forcing my eyes shut
I loved that her body spoke to me,
she had too much control of her words.
They were never true
