why do you push me away?

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?
