I'm Wearing You, Today

I'm wearing you, today,
surrounding myself in layers of your
blues, and pinks, and greens;
stepping into you, pulling you on
and buttoning you up around me
like a second skin, a magic
I can carry with me while we're apart.
It's the closest I can get to
keeping your legs pressed against mine,
your arms around me, and your
breath hanging on my neck
as I go throughout my day,
in anticipation of colliding again, tonight,
with the browns and tans
of your eyes and skin as, once more
drinking in the wines of your lips,
this second skin sheds
at the touch of your hands.
