Blue Talk

I don’t know what’s happening in my chest.

When we lock eyes, I lose all my defenses.

And I feel this need I never knew,

To keep myself from wanting you,

But still, my dreams don’t seem to get the message.

I’ve seen you and I,
Adrift among the passersby,

No blue talk, just the subtle disconnection from the lights and sounds

That aren’t your eyes, that aren’t your mouth.

No blue talk, just this need I never knew I had

To keep you from possessing all my thoughts. 

To keep my mind from wandering to where you are.
