I trace things with my thumb. My own imaginary lines, following what my eyes see. Have done for as long as I can remember.
Subtitles, facial features, road signs, punctuation, clothing hems, angular shapes.
Imagine how beautiful it is..
when I get to trace your face.
Your eyes are mesmerizing, full of mischief and joy, each crinkle, lined with my thumb as you laugh at me..
Your lips, so full and tempting, line by line dancing around the ball of my thumb. If only I could reach out and trace them for real..
I know your face by heart, I could draw you a thousand times, every expression, every minute detail, I can close my eyes and there you are…line by line dancing around my thumb..
