Now is not the time.........
the thoughts gingerly spread
from your mouth to your toes.
inching its way down your already tender spine.
Those eyes, crystal with intention.
Break the silence with a flicker of eyelash..
Such forgiving lips part with three rotten words.

With an empty headed understanding
I let our shallow hands meet.
riddled with flaws.
wretched but so gorgeous.

We fall to pillows and blankets.
stained and ridden with stink.
My lips part unwillingly and love spills from my teeth.

our fragile little bodies entangled in one another,
Now my only realization,
the horrible taste in my mouth,
my bitter longing.
can't be real. these feelings, cliche and false.

I'm constantly wondering,
One day, this will all just be a fantastic memory... a memory of a fabulous nightmare
