Poem: Letters to a Lover Part II 

i. The hushed whispers of interlocking lips are woven into the stitches of your comforter now—I hope one day when you're tossing it to the trash you stop for a moment and remember the sultry August night we combined ourselves into one being.


ii. When your fingers rustle through the pages of that old black notebook, I hope you come

across the tattered corners of love notes long forgotten, that the ink on the pages burns your skin.


iii. As your lover's fingers dance through your hair, I hope you are reminded of the summer nights we spent hiding from the world, the nights we used each other to get away.


iv. I hope five years from now, small things send you back to me, that my name will tie itself around your tongue.
