Caramel

I know the things you wish to say,

I hear them, see them, feel them and when you open your mouth, I ignore them.

With you, I have learned to let you lead by the story you tell yourself,

I have learned to watch you script, direct and live out your story.

I know the things you wish to say,

The question you ask yourself when no one is watching,

When you believe the world is distracted,

And just like that, I’ve watched you create another,

You say I have my walls, my Love, you’ve got fortresses,

They sprout up every time you get too close to letting me in,

So, I watch you, always the invader, always on the outside,

Oh, don’t you know you’re just like caramel? Too sweet and sensuous to ignore?
