"...that I was, fucking high..."/"I am colorblind"

"And, for a space in time, I forgot we were Black.

His Black, really a yellow, honey brown, tinged with the residue of all the places he is--Italy, Panama, Jamaica, the world.

My Black, really a deep, red brown, flecked with honey gold yellow, wrapped up in the rolling hills of Georgia, the lowlands of Carolina, and the desire for the azure of the Caribbean Sea; the places far beyond what I've seen.

In that indiscernible moment, the drug riding up and down my spine and diminishing seconds to slow motion oozes, I close my eyes and forget what color we are. We become beyond color, just the need in our bodies to be close.

We become beyond our names, beyond our history, beyond our future because in that moment it is just us pressed against each other as if our very sanity depends on how close we can be without merging into the same being.

We float mid-air, transcending our bodies, leaving the bounds of your room, even; skating on air, our spirits touch nakedly, unashamed, needing, feeling, existing in the other.

Your kisses fall like tiny explosions underneath my skin, erupting outward, stealing my breath until I pant with need want desire want desire need need need of you
to touch
the hottest
quietest place inside of me, your place, that I give to you.

And when you do, I close my eyes to you, as if I am blind, and I become all other senses:
I taste the tiny bumps on your tongue as I smell the soft fragrance of your skin and the strong scent of us; I hear your struggling to retain control as I feel you loving me the only way you know how

with you, my body is lithe, thin teenager glory and simultaneous adult curve all woman and with me, your body is manchild beauty, familiar comfort
and together, we are more than Black, for a space in time."
