Before The World Broke

from by It's Just Vanity



Long locked hair, that I didn't smell before you left to cut it off and give it away.
The morning escapes me again, staring at the back of your back and the crease in your legs and the sweat on your skin from a dream getaway.
We don't wake up for the sun, there is love and that's enough.
It's always enough.

If love is always and forever, we don't need to speed up time.
It takes infinity anyway, to count the freckles line to line.

It's not that I was falling apart before at the seams in my arms.
My limbs were ripping out to ease my heart's escape.
They would jump out, climb down, search the world for anyone kind enough to help a heart that was only desperate for you.

Shake gracefully in your skin, so cold it burns.
Lay honestly, this is not a time to leave.
Where was I in winter? Hips attached to yours.
Where were you in September? Searching for savior.

To imagine being balanced out and paint our days as grown ups who have found the one at this age.

Quake and Anticipate.
Quake and Anticipate.
Quake in Anticipation.
