may 1st

i elevated my honesty
to a place where i can't return
i've been in arms for longer than normal
a goodbye turned into a precious time
into a
i'll go round the world with you
travel by deserts and pouring rains
for you
in a sweetness that
neither of us is ashamed of,
but still concerned.
what will happen when the other fades?
will i ever remain steady,
looking through the eyes that know me
and feel like i've actually reached
the place i wanted to be?
