We were meant to hold on
Or let it drown in the snow melt
Is this seasonal love
Or a tree holding strong
Fumbling with my belt
You seem uninterested in speaking
I promised to discover every park
Living amongst your body
Scratching, biting, grasping
Lay my flag down to claim
Where I should be
But here I am and here you are
Sometimes life is just happening to me
We’ll try to control it
With a hickey and set of orgasms
As if that’ll slow time
Or let us be free
What’s one more night among our bed
Maybe give me some more
If I share with you
As such not as much
The canyon between what we deserve
And what we have grows every day
I’m not sure our sheets can take the strain
