"I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into a void, and that oblivion is inevitable... and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you." Augustus Waters

I love you
And the way you stand,
as if waiting for the next blow.

Like your wrist as it flicks another stroke
Of a soft lead pencil drawing every curve
Black on white and all in between,

But nothing is straight
If no one is allowed to simply love someone
With a love that is more than just skin deep

And oh! how I wish to kiss your checkerboard arm
But we are all still dripping wet from a rain long past.
And I'm still writing, long since the pen has run out of ink.

This is wonderfully done. It is not fully clear and that makes it so much more deep and mystirious for lack of a better term.
