You with the sad eyes,
isn't that a song?
It flitted fast across your face, the pain
you hide from everyone
and especially from
Guarding me from it
shielding me, you stand in front of me,
it is too terrible,
won't let me see the
Uncover my eyes please -
let me look.
Does it hurt when I press here?
over your heart?
You're only going to stare on straight ahead,
I'm quite alright.
And walk on by, quickly now, flash a smile, then hold her tight
Maybe she won't ask questions.
But she wants to.
Running, run after you and I'll probably
trip over my own feet
trying to keep up with you because you move
so quick, snap your fingers and
Reaching out to grab your hand
to make you turn and face me, grasp your face with both my hands
Look at me.
Angry eyes now, so cold, fire would be better,
I touched you once and you pulled away, now I'm
petrified in place.
Pure hot anger is better, you feel
something that way
like love maybe, you feel
and you feel
Cold anger, frozen anger is the worst
kind, the kind you
can't talk about, the kind you
can't feel, nothing can touch you
nothing can make you warm.
Let me touch you, touch you again
I'm warm from trying so **** hard.
I could make you feel okay again,
wonderful maybe, if you would let me?
Stop trying to do that
Words like ice and I'm stuck in this spot I can't even dodge
the frozen shards, sinking into, tearing
my skin, my
eyes freeze wide open, as the
tears turn to icy trails on my cheeks.
Don't touch her, don't go too close with the
ice cold fury because you might
but you've done it anyways when you wouldn't tell her,
when you turned
so touch her,
In the midst of this frigid cold comes your
breath, warm on my cheeks.
With the sweetest tongue, the softest mouth and
you love me.
Again and again you love me.
I love you.
I love you.
The tune fits so flawlessly, slips
from your tongue to mine
and back again,
again please? Kiss me, harder
slower every time, show me
please, how you love me,
Sing to me, play
for me, sing the song of how
you love me.
I'll beg if I have to,
please God please.
What do they call it?
Love, I mean.
well that is much too slow
the incline not steep enough
the falls not hard enough
but I suppose it will do for a metaphor.
You don't like heights but if you hold my
hand, maybe we could stay up here
a while? No chance
we drop and hit the ground
then we're tossed back up
skywards, flailing for one another
for a hand for a heartbeat.
With a roller coaster at least you know,
you're never going to hit the ground.
Please wait until the train has come to a complete
stop before exiting the ride
but I don't want to leave
don't want to let go
I can't, I won't
Because I would rather hit the ground in your
arms on this ride
than be anywhere else
I'm safest with you.
I guess it's not so much like a roller coaster after all
but I like what I've written there
so I'm letting you read it.
I never wanted to make anyone
smile, as much as I want to make you.
Your smile, sometimes rare,
is the most wonderful thing
I can think of.
So smile please?
Laugh for me, when you're not
happy I hurt, I want to
curl my body so tight around yours, wrap you up
inside of me
until you stop hurting, and then I'll feel
I'll **** it out through your nose, through your mouth,
take the sadness right out of your lungs, see
how I made that sound poetic, when
it's only an inside joke?
There you go.
It's not so hard, is it? Just
do what I do, follow me.
Your smile is so
How could I not
when you are happy? Because all I ever
want, all that I
need, is for you to
And not a fake smile, not so forced -
a real, genuine smile because you are
to be alive, to be
with me, to be
the most wonderful person in my life, to be
the only one that can make me
And I see that smile,
surfacing from behind that glare that is
'just your face' (it's not your face)
and when it happens, when it
splits open, and you look so happy (that is your face)
I smile and I want to be
close to you,
Let me touch you, run my
fingers over your
face, and through your
hair and down your body let me
Touch my face, with your
fingers, with your
lips, tell me how you cannot let me
because you need me like I need
you, I can't stay
away from you, can't keep my hands off of
you, sink my fingers hard into the
soft skin of your back because I won't let you
leave, I could not live if you
If you let go of me I will never
make it, not
alone, not without you,
you cannot let go.
Hold me, close to you
next to your heart and never
let me move from there, it is where
I am happiest.
