Writing you into Poetry

Writing you into Poetry

A Poem by Nervana Zahran

I miss your sun-kissed eyes and the smoke coming out of your lips,
I wonder if I'll ever make love to your lost soul;
And space out between your hips.

Come paint my body with your sins,
Make art out of the friction that exists between our ribs,
touch me in a way that doesn't make sense,
And leave a permanent tattoo of your hand prints.

Why do you taste like so many regrets?
I promise I'll keep your heart inside my chest,
And take you to a world where our particles would freely collide;
forming a molecule so strong that the energy of the universe wouldn't be able to split..
You're the indistinguishable fire inside my head
Why aren't you letting me in?

I'd stop obsessing about stars if you let me kiss the heavens out of you instead,
And hum a lullaby that'd keep you sane in nights your body aches from all the bullshit,
I wanna learn how to swim with the demons in your head,
And love the scars that you bury with the monsters under your bed,
Take me into your cloud and I'll give you the skies
When will you let me in?
Just let me in
