sum of parts…


The nape of my neck waits for your warm breath
The small of my back for the stroke of your hands
The back of my knee has a place for your entwined leg
The crook of my arm wants to rub your neck again
My ear wants to hear your heart beating
My forehead misses the brush of your lips
And my lips the rough pad of your thumb
I am but the sum of all of you and you but a sum of mine.
(Here’s me reciting this for you on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/tanzila/sum-of-parts)
