what's your middle name? do you hate your job?

Woman

by nyssa96

Throwing stones at your window, whispering

let me inside your brain

I want to see if fireworks go off

every time we hold each other's gaze a little bit too long

and you do it so well- making me feel like I am dancing on quicksand

I can't seem to pull myself up (or I don't want to)

How do you make everything move in slow motion?

You walk into the church in your Sunday dress

and all the angels lose their minds.

I pray Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned

and I think I am about to sin again

because we are only a few inches away from touching

and I can hear you humming Danse Macabre

while smothering a grin

and God, I am so worn out

and so yours.
