I ghosted my name into your skin with my fingertips
and hoped that if you felt it so many times
it would never leave you.
It was selfish yes,
but you made me so in loving me
I wanted all of you
Every freckle and laughline
and every tear and tooth.
I never wanted anything so much as I wanted
to leave fingerprints on your soul.
And in wanting this so terribly,
I allowed you to leave your fingerprints on mine.
