"The Fall" by Tara Miller

One October

I anticipated for the first time

falling

in love

after too many days

of loving men

after manufactured, cliché nights

in backseats

front seats of cars

sweaty, thinking

I was sure

limbs entangling

hard, too hard

fingernails

etching his name into me

unrelenting

me, positioned there until

her fingertips

traced explanations

skin they touched

ached with certainty.

#poetry #love
