Because I need more time

Love isn’t an ice cream you lick

It doesn’t melt in the sun

It burns in here



Because I’m not ready yet

My feet have cracked and my soul is weak

Love isn’t a bottomless well of forever

It sizzles like antacid powder

And then flat


Because I fear

Love weighs a ton

It needs a stronger man

And these shoulders break easy
