i want to pluck you from the ground
& take you home to watch you grow.
you are the rainbow,
the stars on the horizon,
the twinkle in my eyes.
i am a writer
& i can immortalise you.
i want to know if you think of me
when you wake up
or if i’m just a fleeting thought in
gone with the wind
i talk and talk & i say nothing.
i’m only as perfect as you make me out to be.
you light up the sky like a firework
& i don’t think i’ve seen anything
& once i fall in love with you
you’ll live forever
