Hold me till all
my tears fall and
dry. It's better
that way.
My tears will
wash your skin
and your arms will mollify my chills.

I didn't think there was a single ugly sight in North Carolina.
But after you and I
said goodbye
all the ugly found my eyes.
I want to be back in your bed, begging you to touch me.
Just go on like that
until we need to uproot and move.
But only when we are ready.
