Not for me

You are not for me
You will belong with someone else
as I belong in another pair of arms
in another bed
on any given night

You are not for me
And I know this but
I appreciate the wisps
of your hair falling in
a smooth curtain
I admire the tidy irises
lining your inky pupils
I have noticed the
freckle spill across
the bridge of your nose

We lay in different pairs of arms
and sleep in different beds
yet I wanted to say
I appreciate these things
