intrigue is for lovers who hope

: if you have metaphors for heat,

let them cool to a simmer

before you read - //



she is

sweet like a sip of summer


and most likely hard to hold,

like trying to stifle a giggle

or like keeping a deep inhale

in the pit of my chest -


she is

concerned with me


not like prematurely upset,

but instead

like tending to a fallen flower by

kissing the stem

where it bends -


it’s complicated, i

am impatient, and she

feels like wonder, but


there is no rushing

the time it takes

to love me

without answers -


we remain

in the options of early spring,

and she most likely carries the rain

like dew - //
