Susurrar

You are not here yet.
You live in a space of your own,
swimming in the liquid
of life,
kicking and stretching
to come out,

but at night, I can hear your
heartbeats. I can feel
the stars bouncing off the sky,
sprouting in me, blooming
into a pair
of tiny, closed eyes.

I love you now,
more than I have ever loved
the human who helped
me make you,

you are not here yet,
but remember that

a womb can love
deeper than
a heart ever could.

    I admit the title drew me in. I was sort of expecting something in Spanish lol but this is so much better than anything I was expecting.

    "I can feel
    the stars bouncing off the sky,
    sprouting in me, blooming
    into a pair
    of tiny, closed eyes."

    I love the warmth and tenderness felt throughout. <3
