you feel like rain
on a warm night
dancing in puddles
until your feet hurt.
or like driving for the first time
the first taste of freedom
where the world moves a bit quicker.
like screaming until throat gives out
laughing until your stomach burns
running until you can't breathe anymore.
the way you yell
makes my heart race
the way your brow bone becomes stern --
when another shows me attention --
makes the wilderbeasts inside run wild.
we stand in a room
steam pours out of your nose
we are fighting again
you scold me for being indecisive
for always making a mess
then there is a moment --
where your eyes travel from mine, to my lips, and back --
that is when you feel like fire
deep down buried inside of me
longing to get out
to burn for you
i know why we keep doing this
why we tear eachother apart
just to hold the idea of us together
why hurting eachother is more comforting
that letting what we have go
for there is no other
and there will be always be plenty for you
