Random Poem:

She's a dot dot dot...
peacetonight

Don’t move
 1
Stay tight
 2
Pressed against the wall
 3
She’ll get a jab
 4
When you blink your eyes
 5
Too slow
 6
Then she’ll seal you up with words
 7
When you act
 8
Like she doesn’t affect you anymore
 9
 
 
She’ll brush her lips across your neck
 10
Knows it drives you wild
 11
Gives you the chills when you
 12
Breathe her in
 13
And hold her in your chest
 14
But then she’ll let go
 15
Like she’s offended
 16
That you held her too long
 17
 
 
She can smell you down the hall
 18
Or on people who steal your scent
 19
She’ll let you know to make you smile
 20
Or hold her eyes on you
 21
Just one second longer
 22
Make you shiver  from her bitterness
 23
Like it’s still December
 24
When it’s almost June.
 25
 
 
She can lie
 26
Disguise her heart for black
 27
But she couldn’t hide
 28
Those eyes
 29
Even though she tries
 30
Can’t she tell you know
 31
The way she works by now
 32
 
 
She’s a dot dot dot…
 33
Never a period .
 34
Yep,
 35
She’s got you again.
 36
