"Something I Want" by Alexis Rhone Fancher

back of you spooned

into me, ass moored


my belly’s  

harbor, your cock  


beneath my fingers,

and I know you  

find it hard to  

pay attention. 


but there’s something

I want to tell you, how     

this love broke me open, 

my caution spilling  

out of me like

your semen when

I rise from 

our bed.


this love

has become me.


I could no more live 

without you 


breathe under water 

or hang from my heels

on a star.
