I wasn’t looking for love.
Well, I wasn’t really looking for much.
I thought that you were just
A silly little teenage crush.
You’d wear that old tee,
And I, your hoodie that’s a little too big for me.
I sussed you out like a mystery.
You were 24, and I was just 19.
I wasn’t ready for you –
Cue a segue by the light of the moon.
You’ve got skills to make a girl swoon,
And I’ve gotten addicted to your sweet tunes.
Fellow pilgrim soul,
Won’t you share my road?
Tread softly for under your toes,
I have spread my heart’s hopes.
I was a labyrinthine game so tangled
In my tousled clues. And you, a mangled
Pearl inside a chest, inside a vault,
Quite tightly sealed. And thus I shattered all
Your boxes, and in turn, you cut my strings.
We now lie here in pieces, wondering
Who scripted this: that midnight halo, bubble
Tea, your keys, my wings, this perfect puzzle,
Brought together undeniably
As in our fantasy of sand and sea.
