how careless you are with my heart,
accepting with such disregard
affection I can’t help but send your way.
Not uncaring, but so unaware
how you play me for a fool
with no intention, no idea.
Creating chaos with a glance,
devastation in one soft sigh.
And when we touch,
in your innocent arms I am lost,
sparking on sunbursts and iridescence,
thrust into a fantasy of requital.
And for an instant my world shimmers.
Then reality returns,
and somehow it slips away
and we go back to being
just good friends..
