i get lost in your eyes
wait, more like –
by that little sparkle i see everytime you laugh.
and when those big brown eyes grow wide
when you carefully tease me
it’s as if your gaze could envelop me
just in case
i try to squirm away from your thoughts.
i snuffed the fire quickly
to prevent it from spreading far
pulled the moon out of my chest
and sent it home to the stars
i gathered the earth in one quick sweep
and carefully boxed it in
and planted a new seed in place
in the wreckage,
may new life begin.
It was a long trip and it was natural that I propped my head onto your bony lap, your denim pants grazing through my cheeks.
I fell asleep instantly.
I awoke to your hand, softly tapping my back, to the rhythm of the song on the radio.
I wish we were going to the ends of the world.
Time has not done anything for us
Small curves, big curves
Through rough familiar edges
A hand gently rests
Trying to sink to comfortableness
A sigh, a wisp
Eyes tightly closed, yet still sees everything
Your scent is still intoxicating
Ah. So i learned that we naturally gravitate to each other.
But i wasn’t that all surprised.
It is one of them days that i wish
It was you.
(Except for that tequila shot during a bachelorette party and that half cup on my birthday)
It would nearly be 2 years since i last craved for a cold bottle of beer.
I figured i didn’t need alcohol to reduce my stress, curing my hangover only added to the stress
And i didn’t need alcohol to celebrate happy moments in my life – i was already the party all by myself! Why drink beer when i can have coke zero?
Besides, as i grew older, my definition of great parties have evolved from an all nighter, bar hopping with bass thumping beside my heart to night out with good friends and laughing the whole night it gives me stomach cramps.
But tonight, i remember how cold beer tasted like. I can smell it. I can taste it.
