don't ever leave me



White roses placed upon my wrist
A hand to hold,and lips to kiss
Butterflies, ominous

Awkward silence caressing dinner
Slowing time makes patience thinner.

Leaving time arrives too late
But Arrival makes me appreciate
Walking in,freezing cold
Dancing close,memories mold.

Night is closing,midnight's invitation
We have reached our destination
Embrace quick and reminisce the day
Before I go home, and you drive away.

Tomorrow beats yesterday by a mile
The sun rose high with a childish smile
The evening cast a magical spell
Four minus two make an uncomfortable scene
A question
An answer.
A brightening face.

Theaters contribute to conversation
Icy fingertips,sweaty palms
Credits roll up the screen
Cautious lips peck,grinning teeth gleam
Hold me close, don't ever leave me be.

I'm glad that I met you
No matter where this goes
I'm happier than ever
And I'm sure that it shows.

It started on a bus.
