Escape from the Real World

let me write you a song, girl
that i will never sing you
because I'm far too shy

and no, I won't write about the real world
because I've found that the real world 
isn't pretty unless you lie

instead I'll sing about the slow twirls
that you and I make
as we dance across my mind

and I'll try to capture how my lips curl
as I try to remember the taste
from that last kiss goodbye

I can't imagine heaven, girl
being anything less
than the peace in your eyes

and I can cope with the real world
if every now and again 
I can see you smile

my head has been constantly in that slow twirl
ever since I met you
and I don't know why

but now I long to see your lips curl
logging away the taste
of our next kiss goodbye

wow, Josh, that was amazing. You are an amazing poet. I'm sorry I haven't read much of your work lately, I haven't been on this site as much and you haven't been on the other. I really missed your work. Amazing, simply amazing. You will never cease to amaze me.
