You smell like heaven,
and I’m enamored by the possibilities,
but I know what possibilities lead to…
Or a broken heart.
I’m ready to step off the edge,
but you’re unmoving…
I let you pull our hips closer together,
I let you hold my hand,
I let our legs intertwine,
your heart pounds in my ear,
yet you could never be farther away,
the fervor is gone.
I would drop everything for you…
Who am I kidding,
I’ve already fallen.
Move your fingertips down my spine,
grab my waist,
the tip of my nose presses on your jawline…
I feel your eyelashes on my cheekbones,
yet there’s only air.
I hear you whisper in my ear
when you’re nowhere near me.
I tell you I love you…
And my heart breaks.
