It is in the way you say

and do not say things that matters

most. I can read past slogans

see through air, calm down

in seconds. Explode over

charades, and win song titles

but I am not like you

and you are not like me.

This is what makes us so

compatible. Poetry has

fangs, soft skin, tainted

words. Books have happy

endings and you could

be in love with someone

who can love you so

much more. I will not

get offended or turn on the lights

before it is pitch dark.

Enormous swirls of regret

in bright colours follow me

(this is perfect for a girl like me).

It will always be hopeless

and I will always be a romantic.

You may set me afire

but then I breathe again. Remember

that you are not even with me

yet you are.

Heart pounding love

slow gasps of air

deep sighs of beauty

I lay all day waiting

for something to happen

and nothing ever does.

I shut my mouth

and win trivia games.

I hate wicked games

of love and deceit

and yet find myself

the main character

in my own drama.

Do whatever you want

I will not question your motives.

In essence, you should

run as far away from

me as you possibly could.

Please do,

the time is Now.
