“…And I know that one day,
You will let me in.
And we will begin to love in a fashion I couldn’t fathom existed.
And we will laugh at the fact that we ever resisted this blissful togetherness.
And the sex?
Well, it’ll be off the charts.
‘Cause we’ll both be
But we’ll be fucking
From the heart.
‘Cause our loving will be something where the
Whole is much greater than the sum of the parts
‘Cause we’re artists, after all,
So what else would fate have us make besides art?
And I know that outside of this space time frame, we are one and the same
We’re a part, not apart
So I know that I can wait patiently for it to start…”
An excerpt from “I Know This” by Rachel Kann
What if I kiss all the spots you taught yourself to hate?
What if I placed my hands on them and left them still, long enough for my heat to join ours and you to forget there was ever air between our skin?
What if I love all you loathe and what if I spend my days dirtying up your brain that was washed?
Show you new pictures of the same you you started avoiding in the mirror?
What if I say all they say is wrong and fill your ears with honest words in a language you stopped practicing?
What if I plant new flowers in the places you frown at, and teach you the names of them as they bloom?
What if I told you to never cut them and let the petals decorate the floor as you twirl through your life?
What if you forget you were ever anything other than beautiful?
