I’m closing in on what love should be.

Honey rotten teeth
and velvet tongues
spitting out words that fill my lungs
Crafting worlds that make me want to exist
yet tearing it away for a moment of bliss
You gave me a fresh start 
a forbidden promise of something new 
an opportunity to forget
make myself have a different view
so I am willing to forget
words that bite at my skin
if I can live another life
have a different home
be a different wife.

I’ll let myself be blind 
if I can just survive
I can pretend it’s love 
the more time that passes by.
