Could be anyone

Could be anyone

A Poem by _mal

Tinder vs. love

There's comfort here
That ready smile, easy banter
Long limbs that pull me in and over. That spot
For my head on your collarbone.
You're practised. Interested.
Narrower, a different design
Blonde hair brushing my cheek
Worn pale hand brushing my thigh but

It's meant to be my fingers
Toying with the dark tendrils softening the tendons in your neck
Admiring the shades that seperate us. Your arm draped around me
My head on your stomach
Listening to the familiar
gurgle of your belly, thrum of your heart

There's comfort here. It's temporary

Your choice in wording is wonderful. :) Great work.

Fascinating juxtaposition between the first and second verse.

The comfort of a ready smile and easy banter may indeed be temporary, but not so the comfort of familiarity.

Really enjoyed this.

Like it or not, this could be what loving means.. the mere being. Beautifully said words, finely painted happenings. Pray the 'temporary' converts to 'forever'.. past experiences can tarnish.. but.. who knows.

I guess sometimes you have to take what comfort you can cause there's not a lot of it going round at the moment... may we both be proven wrong and that "temporary" be found to be "lasting".

I like this. No need for words, grand gestures consigned to memory, just love

Beautiful your words create a beautiful scene of enjoying another's presence. Like the dream-like flow of the poem.
