Ten times more.
Give me back ten times more.
Ten times the love. Ten times the patience.
Ten times multiplied by two,
added back into itself
how am I so in love with you.
Fold me into your life like I was always meant to be there,
blur the lines between reality and nirvana.
All I want to do is wake up next to your beauty,
Love you, everyday.
Love you as you continue to press
on all the knots in my back,
acquired from a lifetime of skepticism;
from people not treating me right,
not loving me right.
Fold me into your heart as we navigate the mess of life
just like pizzle pieces
your love filled up all the missing space
activating a piece of my mind
that has been dormant for years.
When will you cease to be a lattice my brain needs to untangle?
If you were an angel what kind of wings would you have?
Your delicate hand touched
the stream of my soul,
and just like that everything was illuminated
The last thing I remember is the feeling of my smile against your velvet pillowcases.
And then everything went up in flames.
Perfect skies and crystal clear waters
have nothing on your waves
as they crash into my existence.
I just want to loosen this
pull you have on me but
you are the sun and I am mercury
stuck in orbit.
The fight to success
tastes so much sweeter when
you add my sugar to
the tea and stir.
Trying not to love you is like trying not to breathe.
You can only hold your breath so long
and your velvet exhale on my neck
is so inviting.
