Bittersweet

I stared across the park bench
Hanging on his every word
And nothing in the world mattered
Not even the fussing of birds
Fingertips brush like smooth keys
Clueless to the power he holds
Honesty seems to flow with ease
The nerves no longer cold
 ~
The touch can’t be duplicated
As fingers begin to graze
The feeling is reciprocated
And minutes feel like days
 ~
Breathing becomes harder
The longing goes longer
The heart beats get louder
~
The stupid smile on my face
I can’t stop what’s coming
So I live in this very moment
Soon reality will come running

Farewell

Sometimes in life
You have to let go
You have to forget
Everything that you know

You can’t have it all
Without the chance of pain
Maybe yours, maybe theirs
Someone’s left in the rain

With one large stone
The castle will fall
You can be the one to throw it
Or you can be the wall

Left all dress up
With no place to go
This itch will last forever
But it’s a scratch I’ll never know.

Borrowed Time

For a couple of hours
We are teenagers again
With stolen kisses
And roaming hands

Alcohol and neon lights
Has forced me to forget
The lonely nights
And forgotten gifts

Arms I’ve been in a thousand times
Now feel unfamiliar and free of worry
As we sweep across polished wood
To a country song that tells our story

Of forever love that disappears
After broken trust
And many years
Of settling that we couldn’t stop
You kiss my neck
And my heart drops

In a room full of strangers
Who have no clue
What the sway of my hips
Has done to you

Like the time in our childhood
When we were rabbits
Falling tangled into crisp sheets
Out of love and not of habit

But daylight brings it all back
This time I won’t forget
Back to reality
And what we know will come
The reminders that pierce us
With the morning sun
