Distant
Ships

An infinite and evolving case
You and I disbursed
A fragile and delicate lace
A transparent but cursed
Distorted prism
Magnetic ideas repulsing our chances
Forcing momentum into the arms of another
Strong branches holding me up
While I searched for those eyes
And long for a clever disguise to change where I’ve been
Denial leads to paralyzed states
But nothing was ever more clear
Than I love you
I wanted you to know
The declarations melt off my lips on fire
With no intention to change where we are
The hearts ablaze will never fade into a pile of dust
They are the lights of the distant ships
That drift and drift but never rust
