Shivers and Curves

“I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with. The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head. I want to be that kind of friend. The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body…” – Tahereh Mafi

Shivers and curves

Was all she had

There wasn’t any one

Memorizing her words

Or the shape of her bright red lips

When she spoke

So she wrote instead


Short stories

Mysterious renderings

Glimpses into the private world of her mind

That no-one really knew

She found that her words

somehow managed

To make her feel

As if she was the friend

Hopelessly loved

For every single shiver and curves
