You're slowing your breathing,
brushing the fingers through your hair
biting lips like you wish he'd bite yours....
did you really think that?
you sit up at night just to talk to them
even though you know in approximately
10 secondss you'll fall
fast asleep to places
you won't remember tomorrow.
but he'll respond to your delay
and it makes you grin
from ear to ear.
You swear you're never gonna
let anyone see this side again
it doesn't last it doesn't last
you're repeating this
just as he texts you back.
You've never even talked on the phone
or haven't for years passed
somehow it seems sacred...
is it there yet?
do you know?
how would you
if you've never been shown
what its like on the other side.
you're trying new things
saying new things
cause this IS a new thing.
It's like riding a bike
when you really didn't know how to ride
in the first place.
