melt

like a snowflake brought inside
something substantial in me evaporates
in the quiet moments
you look over at me
while reading. or laughing. or when
you dance with me in the kitchen,
in earnest, even when I make up the steps.

I would show myself
if I could

but I
melt

inside love
I have never known.
