I want to remember you
as you are now
naked and supine
on my bed
with your fiery smile
igniting the air
that connects your lips
to my lungs.
with your breasts
and your hips
vulnerable, wanting, longing
for my calloused fingers
to come.
And your body
trembling, shaking, exploding
under the guide of my tongue
(in you I taste God)

I want to forget
what I can't forget,

in me
until it was too late.

I want to remember you
as you are now
here in my arms
with your skin
calling out to my skin
and my skin
calling out to yours.
I want to remember you
the way we are resting
so obliviously now
in this bed,
bodies placidly entwined.

I don't want to remember you
any other way
than the way that you are now
in this moment
with me
where things are simple
and perfect.
(but for the last time
I'm telling you that
