Melt Together

Drunk enough to let your secrets bubble into sound
You dropped words I kept in a treasure chest for years
I held your hand and you led me through the crowd
We let our hands go when we walked out the door

Leaned my ear close to your mouth
Wrapped my fingers in your t-shirt
Melt together, you said we would

Standing there covered by the gold of morning light
You were a vision of a future I waited on for years
Ran down streets and I thought I was headed somewhere
I’m on the edge of an island and I’ve lost sight of you for good

Leaned my ear close to your mouth
Wrapped my fingers in your t-shirt
Melt together, you said we would

Felt your cheek against my cheek
Sat in my room holding your shirt
I gave it back to you
You gave me nothing in return

I hugged you in the kitchen
Out of sight from her
Melt together, you said we would
Someday, you said we could
