i wonder what my hand will look like in yours. i have small hands. when you take it, will it be as firmly as you need to? i think of us laying down together, tangled in sheets, tangled in legs. tangled. calmly tangled. unhurriedly tangled. skins touching. and i see fishes swim against the tide, above our heads, with ease. i have never had someone look out for me the way you do. i move my leg. you hold it, lightly. i move and rest it on you again. you stroke it. i feel the tiny hairs on the back of your hand on my thigh. you feel the softness of the outside of it. and we talk. and i think of the unbearable lightness of being with you. how very bearable it is... and i see fishes swim against the tide, above our heads, with ease. i have never had someone look out for me the way you do. i have known loyalty. but no one has ever proactively looked out for me. it’s the best feeling in the world and i do not quite know how to tell you what it means to me. to have you on my side, is all i will ever need. you must know this. and somehow i think you know that this means the complete world to me. i do not know how you know, but you do. you know exactly what i mean and how important this is to me.  i think of all our parts, our eyes have known each other the longest. in the scheme of things, that is very strange and unexpected. then our laughter.  you make me laugh often, often, even when i am not with you. it is a natural thing. i like to think my laughter makes a comfortable space for yours. and i see fishes swim against the tide, above our heads, with ease. i have never had someone look out for me the way you do.  we take time to laugh and the sound of it has its own dialect and pace and fits perfectly into each other. i have never wanted to belong to anyone. but i want to belong to you. and for me to belong to you, you have to claim me. and i see fishes swim against the tide, above our heads, with ease. i have never had someone look out for me the way you do. do you claim m
