Lines

I want to know the details of you being you,
I want to study the creases on your face,
Each sun kissed freckle on the bridge of your nose,
I want to hold the palm of your hand,
And draw out its lines from memory,
I want to trace the shape of your body with each fingertip,
Without missing a beat,
I want to know every hair which chooses to remain,
And have a personal relationship with your lips,
All of the lines,
Laugh lines,
Tan lines,
Stretched lines,
Lines with a story behind them,
And lines linked to a memory,
I want it all to be second nature to me,
Secrets only privy to us,
All the lines which lead you to me
June 2022- R1
