I Want To Kiss You – by Shayleene MacReynolds


The Poem

I want to kiss you
Kiss you in a way
That ends a game of taboo
Kiss you in a way
That ends a round of bowling
Kiss you in a way
That ends a fight
That ends it all
And starts it all
Because my beginning is in you

I want to love you
Love you in a way
That’s painfully romantic
Little seals chiming gave me
Staring at my shoes
Right in the face

I want to love you like penny
I want to never leave your lap
I want to be with you
I want to be with you on early mornings
I want to be with you on late ones
While you sleep and I lay
Painfully awoken by the way
My heart expands in your presence

I want to be your cigarette
Never let me leave the warmth of your lips
Your sweet lips
Your vodka or your whiskey
Your shot of something
I want to be that
Clutched between your fingers
Never let me go

I want to cling to you
But not be clingy
I want to smother you
But let you keep your breath
I want your life
While still wanting it to be yours
I want you

I want to smooth the Froude skin of your brow
I want to heal the soreness of your limbs
The aching of your back
I want to run my fingers through your hair
I want your cheek cupped in my hand
I want you

I want your morning breath
Your shitty liver
Your stressful job
Your late nights
I want your frustrations
Your sins and your transgressions
I want your guilt
I want your bad days
Each and every one

You are worth far more
But its all that I can offer

And I want your smile
I want to capture the way it dazzles
On the caramel of your skin
And keep it forever in my mind
I want your laughter
I want the way you reach for me at night
The way your fingers interlace with mine
I want the little grown you utter
When you feel me there beside you

I want to sleep naked next to you
And be naked next to you
In you and around you
I want you

I want the fights we sometimes have
I want the reminder that we hurt
Because we hurt and you hurt
And that’s important

I want your hurt
I want the anger you sometimes feel
Just like I want the joy
I want to feel it all
I want to collapes within a beauty
That is you and let myself rest
Under a banner reading love

I want to kiss you
While you cry
While you hurt
While you smile
I want to kiss you
