Close

green, dangling

swept up and falling

slowly I come to you

 

I’ll knock on your door

We’ll sit on the porch

smoking and being

We’ll let silence take its course

 

Now come to me softly,

closely.

I have a secret from the inside

 

Brighter days are spent with you

I bathe in comfort

In eye contact

in the smile on your lips

 

Come, linger for a while

so I will not forget your air.

 

Hold me tight

And sleep with me once.

At least once,

although a million times

if granted.

 

For people like you

don’t often pass me by

who turn on a light in me.

 

So let’s have our time be now

Before it is to go.

And be as careless as we wish

 

For tomorrow will pass

and we may forever

lose this chance

To be as close as close can be.
