maple syrup v. 1

i still remember all the lines
of your face, laughing
telling me i smelled like autumn.

i still remember the weight of your body
on me, navigating
the hidden corners of my soul.
my sighs your compass
my fingernails etching into your back
that way.

i will never apologize for letting you devour my heart.
i hope it still pulses in your belly
maple syrup sweet.

i wonder if the falling leaves remind you of me now. 
i wonder if you will remember me under the harvest moon.
