Just so you know…
I’ve already decided which one of your freckles I will kiss first.
With you, I can’t keep my eyes off of it.
Away from you, I keep it in my mind’s eye.
This one lone spot, dark on your skin, on the side of your face, beside your ear…
You’ll hear my kiss soundly many times over – if I get my way.
And – if you don’t choose me, then I hope you’ll find someone who sees what I see –
On you; in you.
Who sees you –
And wants to plan kisses on the surface of your skin and in the garden of your heart.
A new life, a new love…
Full of freedom and affection.
Trust in the kisses on your dark spots and on your crooked smile.
