Words remain unexchanged,
and desires left unfed.
I curl and stretch and burrow.
I’m restless in my bed.
And letting the days go by
keeps replaying in my head.
How can I love you well?

I’m drawn to your familiar
like nectar for the bees.
And I’ve become as yielding
as the nook behind my knees.
And I beg you please don’t play me
like fingers on the keys.
I want to love you well.

But I know the time’s not right.
The buds haven’t bloomed yet tonight.
So, I guess I’ll just wait ‘til the morning,
and maybe the sun will be shining bright.

The sound of rainfall feels
like your arms wrapped around me.
And I remember our first kiss,
and how you smiled coyly.
You’re my favorite distraction,
and you’re ruining me,
as I try to love you well.
