the silent self mutilation of climbing into fresh bedsheets dusted with the scent of you and gripping tight, realizing all my nights are spent sleeping with a ghost.
It was always there, an ocean between us. But now? It feels like galaxies. Like I’m light years from home and can never find my way back.
Remember when I told you
that you were my muse?
Nothing has changed.
It’s down to the wire, a toothless thread of hope that I’ll still cling to. After all, what else do I have left to hold?
It feels like I’m losing my mind
every time you say goodnight
and I can’t hold you
But your intelligence
is what ignites a fuse inside me
stroke my thigh,
And I feel the lightning
shoot all the way
up into my soul
You’re nothing but a flame, baby
But I’m begging you to light me on fire
You can be there when the sun shines
But at nightfall, you’re all mine
Something about you feels familiar
Like a memory of a dream I once had
But I didn’t hesitate before drinking her in
It’s all about the anticipation —
The build up
The want, the need, the desire
That keeps you flipping to the next page
You’re eager for more
Dying to dig a little deeper
To watch the relationship bloom
And see the fairytale unfold
But once the princess kisses the princess,
You put the book down
And start a new story
I saw poetry in your eyes and, right then and there, I knew I was under your spell.
One day I’ll stop hoping
That your words were written
With me in mind
The sounds that escape your parted lips
Playing in my head on repeat,
Forming the most beautiful song I’ve ever heard
