Always that Way

summer midnights
blink
on cherry lips

wading pool
two feet too deep
drowning in your eyes

everything i want
contained
in seven pink beads

talking to yourself
letting you know
you've found her

holding hands
too hard
i bleed

i show devotion
on my arm
ball point pen tatoos

i love you
i hate you
late night pillow fights

yesterday i knew you
today
you forgot my name

battle ground
wet with tears
last phone call

with one word
it all ends
in my tears

cups of cloud
moon puddles
all is lost

i wish
i was
your Constantine
