Julia Ford

Liquid Love

I pour myself into you:


and pure

Changing my form

to fit perfectly against your edges.

Liquid Love,

becoming anything you want me to be.

But you remain rigid,

and fixed

a stony basin.

not moving an inch.

Catching me only for a moment,

before the Sun Sweeps me Up

and I become the vapor

that sticks to another's cheeks.
