I wrote it down

Gospel

by shinelikestars1

I wrote it down Every time I knew you had that look I knew you eyes were scorching my skin and trailing me like you were reading the gospel like a dream you couldn't place

I was foolish and pretended I didn't notice Every time But later when I called upon the memory and let myself sink into it and breath it in An inch from drowning I wrote it down

I drew your smile with words that weren't good enough but had to do I built us and preserved us in paragraphs Dreamy fragments for my eyes only

When it was over And the end of us surrounded me and cloaked me in a blind confused rage I burned it all Every last drop in my own hopeless poetic ocean destroyed in spite

I remember writing the words But I'll never recall what they were
