Why Can't We?

by Djinn



You come into my life

Frenetic and unexpected

And for moments, when we're in

The same place for long enough

We stop, we talk, we walk

We laugh—the energy builds

Nearly discordant but we like it

We feed off it

None of the others know

They think us too different

To be so close

And I'm notoriously devoted

To my love—someone who may

In fact not love me the way I

Could be loved if I left her

And ran off with you

Somewhere, anywhere, out of expectation's

Shadow so we could shine, brightly

Lovingly, on our own

So beautiful, so energetic that we're

Nearly out of control

Would we burn up?

Or would we light the whole world?
