Jan 2019
Your eyes flickered and blazed into mine,
You didn't mean to do this.
From the jolt in my chest that buzzed into my limbs,
I was possessed by the sparks, ignited despite the odds.
In that moment- I would have given you my entire soul.
I would have merged into your skin and lived there forever.
I would have breathed in every last one of your exhales,
And thanked you for the gift of the heat you didn't make for me.
I would have burned down the house I grew up in,
If it meant we could put up a tent.
Thank god you didn't let me, because I would have.
I would have lost it all.
love, obsession, unrequited, reciprocation, identity,
