Glimmer (041819)

You give me a glimmer of hope

And I do not believe

It is false hope

Your hands linger when they shouldn’t

Where they shouldn’t

If you’re a little drunk

You’re more honest than you intend

You said you believe in me

I believe you – you were drunk

I thought about hugging you

And you hugged me

As if you knew I was thinking it

We speak without saying words at all

Your eyebrows-

And I close my eyes

And you’re right – I know

You tell me everything

When anyone looking in

Would’ve thought you were silent

places i haven’t been back to

like the tattoo
on your left arm
the one sort of about me
but many of them are

like when we walked
to that party
but never went in
because i was scared

and accidentally on purpose
and i wished you would have
grabbed my hand
spun me around in circles

the r rated movie
that you couldn’t see
because you were 16
birthday hadn’t happened

when i skipped science
and we went to dinner
took the bus
and you turned 17

in front of Chevys
when you asked
and i said yes
it wasn’t a surprise
