I let the thought of us being something crawl on what we are now.
Though waiting for the perfect moment may never come
So I tell you I need time to think,
Cause I like watching your smile leave permanent burn marks on my heart,
And when you’re hurting, I’ll make you smile
Carve wrinkles that never age into your face
Stitch up the marks.
The ones no one has seen
Those ones, the ones sunken deep into the spaces of your DNA.
I want to kiss them better
Watch my lips lay on them, until they are unbroken
Make love to them,
Kiss them complete happiness,
And I know that’s not possible but I want to try
To know that I did my best, even when I am afraid
And weeping with no tears
The kind of weeping nobody will notice
I want to know that in that moment, the one
That has no date,
I’ll be able to say I tried,
I longed for something that was worth it.
So I let the thought of us run marathons on the veins of my heart.
