it’s better than i ever knew

i’m writing

while i listen to your song

it’s on repeat

like everything else in my body


my mind can only take pictures

we’re moving way too fast

to ever be found

this moment

with you

holds it all together

this perfect circle

that lets me see through

to what’s really there

and you turn to me and say

“it’s better than i ever knew”


we are completely still

and it is on earth

it is real

if it wasn’t

we couldn’t call it magic


there is no difference between the road and the sky

as we drive through the desert

and your voice

it just burst into glitter

and i heard colors

for the first time


they are holding us


and your stars

they look like eyes
