Instant Gratitude

you smile at me,
as if those lips were
custom made for me…

this persona
you’ve got me situated in
is it straining
or am I swimming?

you think I’m flying
because I try to think
before I speak
as if I cared so much
to waste my time trying
for you to find me,
when loving yourself
only comes second
to nothing else,
so anyone else who
is just as deserving
is irrationally
unnerving, serving only
as a diversion
from the
commitment excursion

but still
those lips…
I can salvage them
anonymously,
maybe imagine
atomically
you and I as
harmony

ironically
