Untitled 02/06/2012

by Lacey Smith

So when I caught you looking at me that way,
I wasn't expecting it.
That's why I did what I did.

Your mouth was forming letters in a different tempo
and I couldn't look away,
I just kept toppling your speech
with swells in my heartbeat,
pitiful syllables,

Everything I ought to tell you is a secret.


Author's Note: I haven't decided if I want to make this longer or if I like how short it is.
