"Something I Want" by Alexis Rhone Fancher
 

back of you spooned

into me, ass moored

in

my belly’s  

harbor, your cock  

swells

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 

than

breathe under water 

or hang from my heels

on a star.
