my way of asking for your forevers…

burn out the stars with me ...that's my way of asking for your forevers

those three words…
i can't say those three. little. words.

because…
i can't say it in three words.
i can't speak these things small because
i don't feel these things ordinary.
i can't look at you and
feel. all. these. things.
and try to fit them into predetermined
patterns or say them to you like
some sort of easy habit;
these things that i feel are star things
and soul things
and all of my everything, things.
so when you ask…
“do you?”
i do, and i will
but out here where it's wild
and up here where it's infinite
and in me where i feel you,
where i've always. felt. you…
even before this.
and where i'll feel you after this,
and beyond this…

so what i can't say means nothing.
and it means everything.

and what i mean when i say to you…
burn out the stars with me

…that's my way of asking for your forevers.

i can't say them.
i can't say those three words.

i can't say it in three words…
i can't speak these things small.
i don't feel these things ordinary.
and i can't look at you and feel. these. things.
and fit them into predetermined patterns
and pre-ordered packages,
or practice how to speak them
in a rented ballroom,
or repeat them as a morning habit…
these are star things, and soul things,
and all of my everything, things…
so when you say…
do you, will you?
i do, and i will
but out here where it's wild,
and up here where it's infinite,
and in me where i feel you,
where i've always. felt. you…
even before this. and where i'll feel you
after this, and beyond this…

so what i can't say means nothing.
and it means everything.

and what i mean when i say to you…
burn out the stars with me
