the promise has always been
I’ll take care of you.
Eyes centered and focused
keeping the minutes clear from all distractions.
Even when your mom starts it up
I’ll keep your chin high above
all the bullshit.
When she starts judging your decisions,
we’ll respectfully turn and smile because
it’s all coming from distorted love.
Choices, everyone makes them
no one is ever truly perfect.
We can make noise and get away like we used to,
even if I have to cover your eyes.
We can walk around with my big hands
guiding you through the business.
That temperamental side of yours,
it’s always saying something
I swear every part of you
fits seamlessly with no lines or edges.
You’re the girl with curves,
I promise to pay close attention
whenever we’re out there doing life things.
Eating seems to be our favorite thing,
unless we’re playing, to some chronic playlist.
The words in songs
have always meant everything, imperfect or otherwise,
we seem to always make honest efforts
whenever we try to sing.
The pure time I get to spend alongside you
is too special because I’m relaxed
none of that nervous bouncing
where you’re putting a hand to my knee.
I can see a lifetime of sipping the drug
you’re my next big fix, I’m always chasing.
The more time we spend building
our worlds entwine and grow together,
Morning Glory vine consuming the back wall.
Cupped hands whisper
they crush and break a side in me
I fall weak to certain things in you.
I know the mood is super loud,
that concert we went to was all erotic
but the music was way too loud
we walked around with damage.
We couldn’t hear for days,
we wouldn’t trade it.
Nothing ever matters anyway
what if I need it
you’re my favorite.
