#sea


you've got that wicked smile
which rubs me raw and tender.

and you always lean down when i talk to you.

as if to hear more clearly,
but maybe to hide your eyes.

those wild blue eyes.

those wild blue eyes echoing my face.

don't look too close.
or we may drown.

so thank you for turning away.

we've got to learn how to swim first,
but someday we might be ready to talk.

face
to
face.

for now, just turn your face and your eyes away.

and promise me
that you'll be there
when i've gotten used to the ocean.


xoxo

    But lovely, as usual.

    1. HAHA. Oh man. No, I'm not. I just write about people who will never know I've written about them. XD

      But seriously, it's my ideal romance too. We'll find it someday! ♥
