semi-Summer romance

The taste of a semi-Summer romance

A dance

Of a need to be loved and wanting to love

He held me close to his chest

Desperate to feel something other than empty

And I gave him everything

Filled him of all his cravings

I allowed him to swallow me whole

Trusted that he’d keep me safe in the pit of his heart

A part

Of me drenched in fear, the other swooning 

I questioned our happy until it was routine

Smiled like it wasn’t something weird to me

Laughed until I cried so much that it felt like that was the only reason to cry anymore

But that’s not true

There’s always a reason to cry

It just hides from us sometimes

Like a secret

Or the truth
