Melodies

“Don’t you see?
It was the way you said my name.
It felt like a melody.”

Don’t you see? It was the way you said my name. It felt like a melody. A brief glimpse of your voice. The timbre of it. And how it did over my skin, making the bed rush to the surface and causing shivers all across my body. It was a song meant only for me. And, my love, I never want you to stop singing to me.

Sing my name again
and let me revel
in it for a while.
