Unsent Message

by Shani Cruz

How could I
not look at you
and want to leave
the world and my
clothes behind
Be nice and 
come here
Look inside yourself
and find me
I laugh at your 
attempts to 
run away
Can't disappear
when invited to stay
Soon I will be gone
Afraid and delirious
I am
Wondering why for you
Time froze for me
All I really want is
I saw your smile 
draped across
silken pillows
My hands shaking
I wanna know if
I'm dreaming
Your eyes
kissing mine
I can hear your voice
I'm reaching
I cried out to you
I wanna be your friend
My prayers go out 
in promises
Forget me nots
I know
I know
but this is serious
I never meant to 
cause you trouble
hold me
This is crazy
I want you in 
ways you'll 
never understand
Protect your soul
Only time will heal us
Tears tattooed my tongue
tasting your painful sweetness
I want to escape
from uncertainty
and find you
Lay next to you 
and find me
Communicate with you
and find us as 
lovers and friends
with big plans to
change the world
