If you knew

If I can’t imagine what it’s like
To run through the saltiness
Run through the saltiness
Run through the faults
Your eyes aren’t faults
For they strike like light
Like lightning
Like light
They might
It might just be enough
To hold a stare
In my state
How would I?
How would it hold?
My voice breaks
Your voice is bold
My voice unfolds
I can’t imagine what it’s like
What it would be like if you knew
If you only knew
How your half grin lingers
It lingers for hours
For hours I’ve studied
the creases
Of your lips
How they fold and twitch
How they hold
A half smile as you show
contempt
And I’m struck, here
For hours
Fabricating love
Your love
For me
