Kiss me again,
Warm up my frostbitten lips,
Send heat waves through my body,
Until there’s a flood between my thighs.
Kiss me again,
I still leave the door unlocked for you,
Even though I know,
You’ll never walk through it.
I want you to rock my body,
The way an earthquake would rock the earth,
If every single tectonic plate moved at once.

Far outweighs the fear that I may never come back for air.
I feel the way the moon would if all the stars died,
Like I’m stuck in an endless sea of dark,
Floating out of my control,
Begging the sun to light up the path in front of my eyes.
Isn’t it silly, the way we cover ourselves in armor,
The way we carry shields across our hearts,
The way we expect our lovers to turn into enemies,
Instead of just promising each other not to take that first swing.
