if you aren't meant for me,
then why does your smile fit so perfectly
into all the empty spaces of my heart?
he asks you to teach him how to be good enough
did you spend all that time breaking down
the walls i'd built around me and my heart
so it would be easier for you to leave?
I was built like a catastrophe
like so much wreckage and despair
that you felt compelled to look
but you hated every second of it
my eyes for you, my eyes for you
a thousand of my thoughts for you
a persistent sinkhole in my chest for you
my eyes on you, my eyes on you
hooks in every inch of my skin for you
laid bare like a sacrifice for you
my eyes and you, my eyes and you
what have you done to make them stuck on you?
the chaotic wild fires of your thoughts
the inherent hesitance of your mouth,
love is too mundane a sentiment to describe this
and the way the earth shatters
and the entire universe bursts and crackles inside me
and infinite flowers take root at the base of my feet
and fire ignites like a war path in my lungs
at the mere sight of you.
