i wrote you a letter / asked your best friend to send it / but took to the sea before you could have read it / retreated to snowcapped waters of the unknown / extracted my heart while it was still beating / but glowing and red / and i swear that sweat would envelop your arms if you broke down and held it / i swear i’m a good man / so why don’t you love me back? / instead of twisting up words you just sat there in silence / in wind burnt homes sighing rays from a sunset / and all i could hear was the sound of the wasp nest / my head made a home for the hum of the insects / but my hands shake and shudder at the mention / of half hearted reasons why we’ll only be friends / i swear i’m a good man / so why don’t you love me back?
When all you want is to lay under the sheets next to someone, and to feel their warm skin against yours. To hear their heart beat slowly as if they feel safer in that moment then they ever have before. To fall asleep knowing you’ll wake up to their perfect self and adorable sleepy voice the next morning and everything will be okay.
