Mirror Me

Clocking on this endless work
I ought to put a letter down
Honestly, I′ll pen the kindest lines
And then some

If I come to teach you every night
Then love gets lost in loops
Harnesses my air beneath my hold
'Tis not so

Mirror me
Like you want me to be
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me again

No kisses for sisters down avenues
No loose lips and no good nights
Be forever in the bed
But not in my bones

If I have to trace for you every line
Then angles lose their urgency
Trickle down my skeleton like hunks of honeycomb

Mirror me
Like you want me to be
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me

Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
Like I want you to see me
