Ain’t asking for commitment.
Know I wouldn’t get it,
And you know I’m a realist.
No regrets with sharing secrets.
Tell each other, knowing we’ll keep them.
Kisses keep them sealed.
Legs wrapped around each other like there’s no chance
That we could leak them.
Treating one another like we’re independently dependent.
Far more than a friendship.
Accidentally blurting statements that
Threaten to end it.
But that word slipped and you know,
I might have meant it.
No use in pretending.
Trust ain’t meant for bending.
Told you honesty is important
And that it’s backed up by my penmanship.
Write you poems full of confessions.
Filling notebooks full of love-letters.
Full of you, the subject matter
All in all every time I move faster
You’d rather scatter backwards,
No need to explain,
And no need to communicate after
Just gather the pages
Keep writing for days and days
Scribble the way out of the maze
Dazed, beyond the lines?
All in all, it’s okay
Ultimately, we’ve got it all
We’ve got life,
Together or not
