why do you push me away?
water chases secrets down my arms, and
i knot your sighs into my hair like ribbons.
your words were honey on my lips, sticky kisses,
oh, so easily i get distracted .
you were the trees that waved in the silence.
you were the river that fought back.
you are the weeds that forget me in the spring;
i choke on you, i struggle as the lies wither on my tongue.
i only meant to love you,
so why do you want me to drift away?
