Me and You

 

Cooler heads never prevail.

We come apart

at our already frayed seams.

Consciously,

or unconsciously,

we do obscene things

to keep it interesting

and we

stay this way forever.

 

Babe,

I hope we never change.

We’ve come so far

this way.

Drink until the stars sway.

Then I say something dumb,

and you’re laughing.

Then I say something dumber,

and you’re crying.

 

Maybe it was true,

but both of us

are in denial.

That’s one of the ways

we’ve made it through

so many nights together;

we deny the world,

until it’s just me and you

and the stars in the sky.
