Do you ever look at space and wonder?
I mean, try and notice the things that made people explore?
The space between you and I
The first time
A t h o u s a n d miles of overthinking
the potential consequences
and whatever the parole officer in your mind allowed your heart to say
but truth cannot be heard
it must be felt
The holy brail of your lips, and if you ever want to search for truth I can tell you
It’s moving closer to her only to grow further from what you know,
A battle with the risks
And you lose control
Because it would hurt more to wonder, than to leap into whatever life brings with the risks
(and you swear you watched your feet before tripping)
Before taking the l e a p from that side of the cliff and slowly filling the space
Until you’ve crossed the sky and with your eyes closed
find that kiss
If you want to know what truth is,
a place where crashes of thunder become symphonies, and lightning :flashes of beauty
Each strike her own
Her voice, her touch, her smile, the rush, her laugh, her mind, the beauty, her eyes, her scent, her lips, and that one kiss,
Make seconds feel like forever
We’re tourist in these foreign lands,
Speaking a language of sweet nothings, our hearts rushing, and Iswear time was running just a bit faster
when you said you loved me
when I thought you meant it
butI can’t stand to call myself senseless
I could feel you’re tongue burn when yousaidyouwantedspace
space cannot measure how long my ears hinged when I said okay
space cannot describe how every time I see you, I grip my hands to try occupy what I gave you by letting go
Is the furthest thing from us
We are not a spaceship
We are a hot air balloon that shape shifts
That, spiraled up in the air, fervently burning
so why try and let go, when we can be that spark in the sky ?
The star that people find in the darkest places?
Truth is found in the quiet, all else is poor translation
So I’ll look at you in the eyes (you don’t have to close them)
And ask you
In the silence
With these two lips
Do you ever look at the space and wonder?
I mean what made us explore?
