DAYLIGHT

White hot jeans, or parachute pants
we can drive to New York popping percocets
in a manic panic so we serve our best
attempt at acting confident
acting like we’re not
each other’s worst patterns
besides, behind every roll is a paradise
so lay under the stars with me
and guess which ones have yet to die
Schrodinger’s coping mechanism
what doesn’t kill me now
will only serve to harm me later
every tragedy so divine on the road to you
let me rest while I’m inside you
truly rest like I could never on my own
my hands Midas through your silk hair
spun grasp catching purpose for the first time
engraved between the grooves of your ribs
for now stand on the edge of the world with me
watching time stop
chase my hand up abandoned roller coasters
and clench it once we’ve reached the top
fuck me on a railway
to the rumble of oncoming trains
and climax only when we’ve molded into one
and when they finally find out what’s wrong with me
love me like it isn’t there

What do you think?
