I want to be the one who
makes you flush and stutter
the one who raises your body heat
I want to be the one who occupies your mind
like you occupy mine
to be the one who excites you
for each coming day
I want to be the one who you specifically chose
to wear that perfume for
the one whose attention you desire
I want you to
say my name when you talk to me
I want you to exaggerate every moment
make every interaction seem more than it is
I want you to look at me with love songs
playing in your head
I want you to bite your lips when I smile at you
doodle my name with hearts in glitter pens
to hesitate when you reach your hands out to me
hesitate because you’re so nervous
nervous because we’re so close
