you

 

small word

in your

mouth:

an oval chasm

like the

O in yOu,

but filled with

darkness

that begs

exploration

 

you

when spoken:

the beginning of

the original

kiss,

lips erect

and ready

for reception

 

you

when heard:

the answer to your

love’s me?

the answer

to your own

query of:

who do I

really

truly

love?
