my words went rusty

you have ocean eyes.
but i don’t know whether that means they’re
blue green or
they’re deep
or full of tears
or maybe they’re a little bit dangerous.

and you have a sunny smile, but
does that mean it’s bright?
or maybe it’s blinding
maybe i shouldn’t look directly at it because
it’ll end up hurting me so, so much.
maybe it burns.

your lips are blood red.
i forget if that’s a compliment but
they sure look nice;
i wonder if they got that way from all
the hearts you’ve eaten
or the wine you’ve drunk
or maybe you just bite them a lot.

your laugh reminds me of
all the perfect words
that have disappeared from my head.
i hate that.
