By Lauren

the scent of summer night
and the reluctant setting sun
floods my senses
like the thought of you

and I keep telling myself
it would never work
but that's not what's keeping me up at night

the possibility is too much to grasp
stumbling headfirst
into a love so powerful
would surely leave me blind
cuz the rest of the world is hard to embrace
when you've had heaven in your arms
and your soul stolen by an angel

so I made the mistake
of walking outside and inhaling
on a breezy balmy evening
and was assaulted
by the memory of your indelible smile
and intelligent eyes
so I sighed a thousand sighs
and walked inside
