a boy, in my bed

a boy, in my bed – 9/21/2020 i write this for you, who may be wondering why despite the hours settled  in the sheets of my bed, you left with nothing but the conversations we shared playing back in your head. you see, intimacy is more than skin–it’s the exchange of breath, the sighs, the […]
