I’d like to get to know you
the way your bed and pillows know you.
I want the dip of the mattress and
the way it contorts to your body.
I’d like to get to know you
the way your clothes know you
and the way your words know you.
I’d like to get to know you
inside and out,
delve into you - into the parts of you
that no one else gets to see.
I’d like to know you
the way others do
and others don’t -
maybe even including yourself.
I’d like to get to know you
the way the sun knows the horizon
and the way the stars know the sky.
I’d like to get to know you
wholly,
passionately,
and genuinely.
