Outside Myself

I love…
…how sometimes when we kiss your tongue will dart out and touch my lips for a quick moment teasing me and inviting my tongue to play with yours. 

Katherine Mansfield to John Middleton Murray, 1918
My love for you tonight
is so deep and tender
that it seems to be outside myself.
… I love you
… I love you
… Oh, what it is to love like this!
