The pain twists and turns around inside,
Like itchy, creepy vines crawling up my spine.
The thorns stab all the deep dark corners
Where I keep my secrets–images of you.
There is no crevice this poison doesn’t reach,
Seeping into my pores and organs and more.
It squeezes me dry and leaves me hollow,
Leaving me to wallow in my own wet tears.
I reach for my memories but it is too late,
They’re distorted and forced out–they were bait.
I took it and swallowed knowing nothing else could be done.
Holding on to what was left, I left it all behind.
When our eyelashes meet
They tickle each other
And flutter away
When our hands meet
They grip each other
And refuse to part
Intertwining in such a way that melts
Skips a beat when you say three words
“I just farted”
And I chuckle at how close we’ve become
Communicating without words
Talking about the everything that is everyone else’s nothing
In a short amount of time we’ve achieved mountains
Although we’ve never pushed or rushed
Because we knew and we know that we’ll have infinity
And that the other is all that matters in a
World of ridicule and resentment
Daily we tighten our bond
And strengthen your hold on me and my hold on you
Roses are red and violets are blue
You already know that I love you
