Cold feet & Blueberry Kisses

Infatuated in trusting my instinct

kind and tender

giving and colorful

Cold skin blueberry taste 

show me i’ll feed you

make me laugh

tenderness in the quick, soft kiss you gave me 

staying together just to stay together

to make us stop and rest

come here,

i cared, i really cared

clouded minds, same love, different lives 

i loved you, because i loved myself

i want you to think of me as much as i think of you

remember me as much as i remember your kind touch 

your fingertips on my cheek

they said good luck
