scribble scrabble, sparrow

friday thru saturday

for less than a fortnight we were seeing
double, with butterflies in our stomachs, whispering
sweet promises of ‘never will i ever’, erasing
memories of time spent.
you said the words twice, made me love you
more than once, vowels lingering in the air, drawing
infinity signs on my shoulder, leaving poetry between
your thighs, watching our world burn with no regrets.
for less than a fortnight you were my queen.
