Me and You


Cooler heads never prevail.

We come apart

at our already frayed seams.


or unconsciously,

we do obscene things

to keep it interesting

and we

stay this way forever.



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.
