Past Poetry / 12.17.14

slowly I trace the lines from your lingering touch that makes my heart sing, darling it's been a while, it's been a while

I'm falling, falling like the first time, exceedingly
you are changing, you are changing every melody in my song

but dear i won't wait so long, it took me everything
to make my heart whole and it won't break for you
I have to break my fall and unwrite you

it's not easy
the effortless pull of gravity from your eyes
oh and your warmth it seems too easy
