I never laughed – or loved – as loud as I did with you.
But you always preferred to keep it between us. Between sheets.
Even when you said ” I know” after I cried I loved you, I still did.
My hearts had an entire year to thaw out.
It’s warmer than its been.
I’ll admit I wasn’t always one worth showing off.
But when I was, no sky could shine as bright.
It still smells like smoke on my tongue.
Not sure that’ll ever fade.
Not sure I want it to.
Wouldn’t you love to thaw out your heart?
