history lesson

We read
each other’s history
on our bodies,

the location of wrinkles,
old, nearly-forgotten scars,
beauty marks gone unnoticed for years.

We read
each other’s history
with our eyes, our hands, our lips,
with kisses and softly trailing fingertips,

with silent warmth that whispers
of history yet to be written.
