The Love of Fear (Stay With Me)

by Shani Cruz

I can't see em' 
coming down my eyes
Tears won't make you stay
Dipped with moonlit smiles
Gone from sunlight
Got me blowin' 
kisses in the air
You're not my man
I wrote your name in my arm
Now I understand
I need to be safe
The depth of
your hands is
too warm
This feeling
too strong
It ain't that deep
a part of me?
Not impossible
I attach myself to dreams
You could
change overnight
Windwhistle through
the clouds
Whispering songs
yellow green and brown
while the music echoes
through my heartbeat
Nightfall leaves me lonely
but atleast I'm free
from lies
licking my thighs
with jagged tongues
Are you the one
who frightens me
I think I frightened you
My tough guy
satin lips 
flawless skin
rugged guy 
Beauty of imperfection
of his feelings
Let me touch you
make you blush
trust in me and
never say good night
I pretend you mean
nothing while 
you play cool
You better get to work
I gotta go to school
so I'm gonna sleep on it
Make believe 
you disappeared
until I'm sane 
enough to really
call this what it is
