to be alone starving for you.

by Steven Kenworthy

I want to safety pin your hair to my shoulder
So you can never get too far away
I’m holding you skintight
I’m holding you accountable for counting my sheep.
Tonight, when the dust finally settles,

And you’re fastened asleep
I’ll keep you forever here with me.


Author's Note: stay close.

Ah, I see you have also mastered brevity with provocative imagines.
