your claws have reached my toes and collarbones,
they’ve dug into my flesh and refuse to let go;
you control how my heart beats,
where my feet moves,
and your fingers release dopamine too intense for my bloodstream;
i’m shaking in your wake,
your presence magnificent,
your absence infinitely more terrifying,
you’ve reduced my future to dust if it doesn’t include you.
-i’m carrying galaxies in my body for you and you don’t realize i exist too.
