Theirs & Hers

[Alternative Title: I wish there was a plural male pronoun.]


Their lips were different than hers.


All lips had the same eagerness and desire,

Except mine when they didn’t meet hers.


Her lips were different than theirs.


She met me where I was,

Not devouring past the moment.


After her lips,

Their lips were distant memories.
