“Kiss the mouth which tells you, here, here is the world. This mouth. This laughter. These temple bones.”

There is a loneliness in being with you;
your eyes are always so far away,
and you never mean what you say.
I’m standing right in front of you,
on the tips of my toes,
grabbing your face,
if you’d just listen.
I’m right here. I’d guide you back home.
If you’d let me.
Oh, God I’d bring you home, and I’d make you whole,
so your eyes would never wander again.
