my love comes out of my pores 
like a thousand fiery comets 
falling to the surface of your skin.
and i'm told i'm too passionate to find adequacy
but imperfections make everything adequate.
let my love enter your atmosphere,
floating in the stars out here isn't easy.
my brain and heart's communication
forms electric lines across the sky making constellations
so count them and trace them with your fingertips
and i'll dance in your world

pull from my spine all the grudges i can't get rid of
i wish for your memories of me
to remain only with gold ties along their edges
but there's damage in your lips and mine
but once there was love instead
where tears drip over and strangers meet
please pull from my heart all the memories i can't forget
my toes are attached with weights
at the bottom of the ocean of your bloodstream
and i can't find a way to cut the strings
please pull from my eyes all the untangible images i can't burn
the images i can't rip in half and set flying into the night sky
pull your skin's memory from my fingerprints
erase erase erase erase erase erase erase

fragile eyes tell no lies
look in mine and hear what it is i'm not saying
i'm always growing
and so are you
but with broken petals
and dried up roots
what ground is there to cling to
if the ground has nothing for me to live for

Always in between wishing that I would have done more or I would have done nothing.

you took the girl out of me
when you left your man on the floor
walked out the door
and changed my life forever
