you just might make me believe

what's your mode of transport?
mine is the sun.
when it rises dripping from
the sea when it falls like honey on
the trees when it swallows up
clouds my soul moves with it.

mine is you.
when you lift your eyes
when you look straight ahead
when you try to speak my
heart moves with you.

Title: Only Just Enough

Please stay close to me,
But only just enough.
Please love me,
But only just enough.
So I can be safe and
Safe only just enough.

Do you see the stars?
How they burn?
How they explode?
And the outer layers of the stars are thrown outwards,
Releasing more energy in a single second
Than the stars released in their entire lives.
How they die.
And you realize all the brilliance you saw,
All the glimmer, all the glitter,
Belongs in the glimpses of remains.

So I know you watch me.
Watch me from a distance.
So I can come to you
And I can leave you.
So you can come to me
And you can leave me.

Do you dream when you close your eyes?
Do you drown in your dreams?
And when you wake up,
Do you remember how the remnant stays?
All the wistful swirls,
All the breath of a single kiss released,
And it's enough
Before you set in motion the--
(I don't think I'm ready.
I think I'm afraid.)

honesty is the best policy
