SneakPerhaps she had never been firm enough around Marty. Although as teasing as their encounters were, she could not resist making him work for even the slightest touch at times. There were times she would willingly embrace him, or allow the briefest of kisses to her cheek and such. Any larger gestures deemed much hesitance from her, and much shying away and gentle protests.

Usually, he was sneaky about it. Approaching her when she was least aware of it, and departing so quickly that she hardly caught who it happened to be. There was always a scowl offered his way, before she would turn and smile if he did indeed leave for the time being. It was a foolish cycle they had, but one she found herself enjoying more and more with the passing days.
There were times where she discovered him laying on the couch of her home, or sitting in the chair behind the desk at the shop. Either way, there were days she could expect him to show up and days when she could not expect

Her pressed-lace fingers coil tight
in the wet tangle of stems
as she climbs higher, kissing
the smooth bone with her toes.
She knew the only way
to your heart was through your mind,
but it's a mighty high ledge to reach
and her delicate palms just kept -
So she braided your spine
with flower crowns to
keep her grounded, even as she
shinnied into the clouds.

You see, I cuffed this angel to my bedpost.
I sank my teeth into feathers she wore like a cage
and asked if I was dreaming, because Love,
you're not holding me. If you only knew the you in my head,
every night--tearing with these heavenly fingers
