To my darling
You smell like chloroform
And I mean that in the nicest way possible, like
you are a total knock-out, and
I don’t think I’d mind if I passed out on top of you and managed to die there.
I got a letter from you once that made me dizzy
The room spun and it felt like there was actual air between my ears
(No comment from the peanut gallery, please)
And then that time in the parking lot
when you held me so tightly
that to this day I don’t know if my vision went black because I closed my eyes
or because I was about to faint.
