Flirtation

The corners of your lips

hold my fondest memories.

They bring me back to joy,

to confusion and acceptance.

They bring me back to life,

to purpose. To love.

Memories so strong that I freeze

at a mere glance.

The corners of your lips

were the messengers that my words could never be.

To tell you “I love you,

I want you,

I long to be with you.”

To pull you in to me,

without you even knowing.

The corners of your lips

were the hiding spaces of my love.

A love that I was not yet

bold enough to explain.

A place where I could tell you,

“I want to be your forever.”

A place where I could plead,

“Please love me too.”

The corners of your lips,

They saved my life.

For without them, I would be without you.

Without you, I would be without me.
