Perhaps there was a sweetness in that moment,
A rare delectable bite, bitter-sweet juices
Running through my teeth like the lies
That couldn't be swallowed, like the
Borrowed apologies: What a scheme you played,
What a tastelessly dark midnight walk,
No stars to feast our eyes upon,
No scrumptious tunnel-light to strive
But there was that moment, like lucid dreaming
It came and it went, and I felt in control, but
Now I just can't rest.
I keep thinking…
Behind, I'll leave it all in the past,
But sometimes I can't help to ask
How you are, I want to know if you're
Thinking of me like I'm thinking of you-
With beer on our breath we won't pass
Any sobriety test, but we'll test the limits
See what's under that dress.
Guess you can care enough to feel.
Guess I can't care enough to.
And the moment passes.
I don't think I can walk away silently
In the dark like you do…
I'd have too many words busting
Out of my heart, 5 litres of blood
And enough apologies to flood
Your brain with questions,
Perhaps you'd pose a question-
And my cardiovascular misconception
Wouldn't be in vain…it'd pump
And you'd pump, and we'd be on
The same page. But I hesitate,
And you're gone.
I'll hold on to that moment,
Let it breathe for me, but those words
Contained are bacteria floating through
My veins, nothing can make me as diseased
As a held back scrap of speech.
Time to re-evaluate- I'd walk away
With so much to say.
It hurts but we're not the same
As we were that moment-
So bitter sweet, all the lust, the love
Ran down my chin, and instead of
Sinking into my skin, the tears
Oh the rainy tears
Made it all go away.
