on the back of his neck
where my fingers fall
when my arms are wrapped around him
i love madly in
– butterflies rising
‘that place on the back of his neck where my fingers fall’ is a poem that was written by the author butterflies rising about her first boyfriend and how she would crush on all of the little details of who he was. She crushed on everything from his voice and his vocabulary, to his facial expressions and little ways, and there really was a place on the back of his neck where her finger would fall. The poem is published on page 147 of her poetry book ‘wild spirit, soft heart’ and is also where her quote ‘details, i love madly in details‘ is derived from.
