you are gold, and I am silver

Wednesday 4th May 2022


I love the way you look at me

When there’s something on your mind,

Worried to say something that might make me

Look at you the wrong way.

 

But, you know, I could never

Look at you the wrong way.

Everything about you is right.

The light is always right, with you

 

I don’t feel like I’m pushing it,

I see you, and I love you for it.

 

I love that you are gold,

and I am silver. In the way

That your jewellery sits on your gorgeous skin

Melts me down, invites me in

 

It scares you when I tell you:

“I’ve got you,”

But you forget that you’ve got me too,

Wrapped around your velvet heart, if you’ll let me

 

For I don’t feel like I’m pushing it,

You see me, and I love you for it.
