You’re magic, electric
vibrancy, butterflies, dizziness
the sparkles in the sky
the rain I watched for hours
with that dumb smile on my face.

You’re waiting, time
tick –
tock –

You’re a lot, meaningful
but once upon
a time
you were (this
is a secret, our secret…
the pain that
I thought was love.

You’re fireworks, explosions
of light and heat
inside my head &
you’re fire on my skin
but (and this is a secret
my secret…
I’m afraid to let this be
what it is.

because I’m still waiting for you to break my heart.
