You've got mythical selkie eyes,
endless in darkness, russet slivers embedded to surprise
And my tongue is tied at the thought of light
plunging through each ardent iris, drawing pupils tight
To reveal the burnished shades only known in the space
Of a gaze that flutters out beneath my fingers on your face

We could be tangled silhouettes against the mattress edge
Tearing fragile hems that get between us in my head
Careless for the blankets folding shadows on the floor
Leave the room destroyed but I don't care, I want you more

And to know what morning looks like sliding down your skin
Hours stretched between your freckles, neck to shoulder giving in
To the promises of motion and a shudder we could share
Or lure me out with dusky lashes I would follow anywhere

Angel scars lend order to my sinful injuries
Trying to remind how all this wanting ends for me
But I find your image spreading through the things I fantasize
Now you've got your name all scrambled in the love stories of mine

Leave me daring in my daydreams
Worthless compared to what could be
Birthdays, cake for breakfast, always embrace you when you
Come home, pulses running free
There'd be so many places calling, the ocean, dive bars, diners, Central Park in spring, we'll go.
And you don't know I'd trade California winters, for walking in the snow, as long as we were close
I only wish that you would see
If you're lonely, I'm all yours, just notice me
