I'd like to float through your love
like paper cranes down the river.
I spread myself wide for you,
lay down on a blanket of my mistakes.
Show me the world through your smile.
I love the way you shrug and say
I just want every one to know you're mine.
I trace my name with yours,
clean letters in the grit of my car.
There are these moments
that I just want to stretch forever,
like the rubber band I placed around your wrist.
You like when I wear your shirts,
and I love the look of my lipstick on your lips.
All of these songs that have become
the soundtrack to our love,
play me like your cello.
I promise to keep perfect time,
beats of my heart to the beats of your heart.
You kiss my stars and I swear,
I've got constelations across my skin.
How can I explain,
the breaths you take,
come from my lungs,
my heart beats in your chest
It's September, I dread
Can we pause at that first kiss?
