she was the girl with cat
eyes: broad and judging and
carnal; he was the doe
with a broken collarbone,
yet she found herself lost in
the warmth of his sighs and
asked simply for a set
of sweeter lies

[because it's only after you
sell yourself to the earth that
you learn love is not a
chemical reaction anticipating
every ignited glance and soured
word; no, it is a thing
of obligation that sleeps upon
your doorstep, knowing you
will always come back,
knowing you could never forget
its name]

he called to her on hollow
nights, and she found his
voice when she had nowhere
left to go

he was the cereal box savior;
she only needed a place
to bury her bones

[it was never sparks but
instead a dull roar that
filled their ears until
life was a blur of static
commitment]

when she whispered I love
you, he really believed it.
Vita de la mia vita
I will remain within your light because I fear the looming dark.

this is genius, especially the last three stanzas; so real and raw. It reminds me of an All Time Low or Panic at the Disco song sort of :)
