You Never Asked but I Gave it to You Anyway
by Megan Guimbellot
Oh damn you and your subtle ways, how I catch you staring from across the room, drink in hand,..your restless fingers brushing the hair from my eyes
Oh, I've known you always and before//felt your breath on my neck at midnight and your smile in the sunlight(if only for an instant)))
And I would beg you to stay,,rest those weary hands on the bare of my skin and be still for just one moment((its quiet here)
But you never listen to a thing my eyes might say and right now I can't seem to find my voice because you're standing way too close(too close)
So I'll hold your eyes in mine and anything else you have to offer in my hands and since I can't speak I think I'll just breathe you in...

Obviously, I love how you've put this thing together. Very, very nicely done. And I'd say you've definitely got the language and imagery to back it up.
