Fall Back


I like you

But not that much

I watch a scene

Such passion

Something stirs inside me

A feeling buried

I feel it deep

And I give in

Just for a second

I used to believe that way

Complete trust

Complete abandon

Two bodies intertwined

Whose is whose doesn’t matter

Yes I can feel

I watch again

It occurs

He’s married

Is she

How does he do that

His wife


A job

Turn it off

I can

I did

I wonder

But it stirred

To trust again

Could I do it

Lose myself but never be lost

I’ll let that thought be

That feeling have a place

And there are two clocks that need me

To wind back by hand

Fall says I’m here

Winter says it’s coming


You both can stay

I feel the warmth of memory

I watch

The light of the jack-o-lantern burn
