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

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

The Time Machine II

Turning back time
A comforting thought
A parallel world
A fictional fantasy
We have one chance
We have one go
Fate is a strict tamer
It’s either yes or no

The Beautiful Distraction

Eyes to the front
Mind on you
I’m told to look straight
But distracted by you
A crime
A taboo
A guilty femme fatale
I’m transforming into
