fever

There are tiny fiery embers
fading in my chest
Fed by
each
last
struggling
breath
And the times you caught my eye
the smiles
your touch
and my silly rhymes
Before we used all our speech to conquer the silence
I nurtured your indifference
Deflating our connection
With piercing expectations
And my silly perceptions
Of what might have been.

But I have this crescendo
that is building up inside of me
and it keeps screaming
let me love freely
like I need your permission
