Let’s pretend we were friends
From before the world began
That these ropes of awkwardness
Are too flimsy to hold my tongue
Even though my ears scoff
And call me “bumbling idiot”
I am amazed you do not feel the buzz,
When I kiss your picture just before dawn.
How do you not feel the heat?
That rises as I ache for you
And wonder if you wonder
When you come to my dreams
Bearing gorgeous as shield.
Gliding with me through fords and cascades
I wrap you in my smile, fluid like love.
‘Easy’ you murmur and grin
“Easy’ I retort and tilt my lips.
Awkward stalks our paradise
Empty lines of white and blue and black
Between us, empty like my brain seems
I wonder where the sparkle’s hiding
Why you cannot be dazzled
By me just as I am.
Maybe all we’ll be
Is a half-formed dream stillborn
Maybe you’ll never know,
How you are everything and forever.
Perhaps its best you don’t know
That you are me and I am you.
