lyrics

pressed.
fingertip to fingertip.
hands
falling
swiftly to spine.

i know the shape of your laughter now
and
you find so easily
corners
to make me shiver.

ears cupped
you fill them with
stories and fragments

(soft)
i keep them and you
in my mind.

(blush)

You speak as though it's a blossoming flower that blooms upon a welcome gaze, a sweet word, or a secret phrase.

Carried
by
the
wind

on a spring breeze, and laid to rest upon the apples of your cheeks and the tips of your ears.

A gentle touch of blush.

But what if it's a fire, and every breath used to disarm sends

high
flying
embers
the

until floodgates are forced to open to combat the inferno inside? A wildfire, carried by gusts. Burning skin inch by inch.

A merciless match, consumed by red.
