You say I assemble my words like we are about to go to war.
I laugh and shrug it off, I always do.
You are back Stardust, you keep coming back and you don’t know why,
It’s killing you, your inability to let me go,
My ability to always smile whenever I see you.
You look at your knuckles and suppress a laugh, then you say,
“Your soul speaks softly to my own, when I can’t take this world anymore, I seek you, the guys say that I hunt for you, like redemption. How is it Love that just the thought of you brings me peace?”
I laugh and shrug it off, but this time, you wrap your hands around me and pull me towards you, I drop my book, my earphones slip out of my ears and you say, “Marry me Love, be my forever.”
I shake my head and close my eyes and gently sway with you, “forever is a long time.”
“It’s as long as we are willing to put in the work, Love. Stop running, catch your breath, just catch it with me.”
And I hear your soul, I hear it speak softly to my own.
