flower petalsi know that when we touchflower petals by ohsostarryeyed
that my energy is yours
that we are like flowers
because at our roots
we need water and love,
we reach tall as we can
to get to the sun
and stretch our leaves
to welcome it all;
and when we touch
i know that our skin isn’t skin
too soft for this world
when it grows rough with gravel
so i invite you back to our bed,
soft with the earth
where we can lie gently
and sleep until it is time
flashback scenario.i remember breathing moondustflashback scenario. by forever-or-yesterday
and wishing on eyelashes
and sharing breaths
as we held each other in early winter nights,
simply talking about how our lives would look if they became one.
i remember the everlasting impression
of that first kiss at my front door,
drowning in a clear spring sky and your voice,
a feather-voice i still remember
when the sun woke us up shining morning colors on my walls.
i was once a marionette,
dancing like a ballerina on my strings.
i danced with him to all my favorite songs
and when his eyes didn't lie of love,
they consumed me with the desire yours swallow me with now.
and the way you are touching me now,
silk fingertips hot on my hips,
chin resting on top of my head,
palms greedily grasping my breasts,
he did all those things too.
that's why i'm not looking your way today
and why i won't be in love with you tomorrow.
you are not much different than he;
another broken soul i can't save.
i learned better than to fall into arms unwilling to catch me.
