The Shirt

Smell of your white shirt Temperature of your skin The way you have no idea I’m looking The way you know exactly what you’re doing Obsessive anesthesia Addictive sedative How much am I allowed to keep How deep am I supposed to kiss Copyright © MW the Mermaid. All rights reserved. Advertisements

The Pearl in Chest

One pearl in my chest Gigantic or delicate Luminous or transparent I keep one pearl In my treasure chest One soul in my heart Flawed and imperfect Mischievous like a cat Keeps me awake Keeps my heart beating Copyright © MW the Mermaid. All rights reserved.
