You and I

You and I are volatile.
I struck the match to watch it burn;
I kissed your mouth to watch you turn.

You pulled away to watch me yearn.

You and I are liars on soapboxes.
Hypocrites on a streak;
Martyrs for the meek.

Sober for a week.

You and I are as forbidden as happiness.
As strange as fate;
Hopelessly late.

And O, how I wait.
