the backwards step

i can already taste the buds
ripening along your vine
as the hours switch places
and spring takes its turn
drawing desire all over our bodies
like a bullseye
the places we could go from here
the way the mind can only be tricked by the heart
the way what’s on the outside
feels so much better
when your reaching from within

i need you to fall into me
as if i was already inside you
backwards from ten
we can count together
and drop
until there is no bottom to hit

we can reach the places our hands can’t go
