i love you
like the rain
falling into the ocean

on my back
sweet swallows
softly submerging

unlike the truths we couldn’t be
in the middle of the day
fears we couldn’t face
before dinner time
bones we couldn’t warm
underneath the sheets

for a moment,
we’re wet drops
on the surface of our skin
misty softness
curves fitting
leaving prints

we are yesterday’s rain
floods and monsoons
we’ve washed each other clean

this knowing,
this is the last time
it must be
i want to be done
falling for you
