you're a sinner's ganymede -
breath taut
eyes wide
we're at ghost-ridden crossroads,
racing on caffeine and love
i half-wish you'll go -
i want to know if life without you as daunting as it seems

the words are on the tip of your tongue
the way the tip of your tongue was -
no.

you said it first and when you did
the lights swallowed me whole
she loves me she loves me not she
loves me she loves me not
she loves me

i love her i love her not i
love her i love her not
i love her

you send me the music
and the passionfruit is on 
my tongue.

passionate from miles away
not miles, though, 
years. two, maybe.

if you could find a 
way to change
the world
would you change
the distance?
i love you, jeanne.

    Poetic, and very very romantic just like you intended! This is fine as it is, to me at least, because it's very subjective, and you're entitled to your poems. It's what you want to express after all. :-)
