famous poet envy...

you should not look at me like that
it kills me to see you stare at me
like i'm the center of your world
tearing through this rhythm
making my way into the places i want to be
it is time for me to make some decisions
about the way my life should go
and it is time for you to sit there quietly
hold me close let me weep
ripping off all the awkwardness
tell me that you love me
it only hurts at first and only for a while
if the stars are shining for us
then let's just sit hushed and agree
do not argue with the whispers floating in the night sky
telling you that this is right
this is not the time to flee
away from this kind of best thing
close your lips and press them next to my ear
where they can sleep
and i will keep you safe
