Safe Places

Star drunk lover

go ahead and cast your spell

on the eve of another night

let the heavy love-like breathing start.

I can already tell

it’s going to be easy

spending these 10,000 hours alongside you.

I hope you won’t mind if

I sing the songs I keep under my bed

it’s fair to suggest

I could very easily

act like some romantic fool

and creep inside your head

writing poetry all night.

We go out and eat like

it’s some kind of taste test

small samples, then we fill out the sheet

I pass my wallet and bill to you

you’re better at that tipping math than me.

You reach and put your hands

deep inside my pockets

we walk like this for hours.

I know I’m too tall for you

to actually come and whisper

the words that are all trapped in,

you’re dying to get inside,

you shout how much you love

the funny thing is or was

yesterday, I was buried underneath

it’s impossible to know right now

why you’re giving so much,

still, we walk hand in hand

searching for a safe place
