"first rule of fight club, don't talk about fight club"

She was
Big green eyes
A chocolate half moon smile
And a love you’d never felt

Dropped on your scale of
Love philosophy and future hook ups
She held
White when compared to the salted gray world

In the flash of a second hand

Coffee shop chats
Scripted family dinners
Kisses in parking lots
Shifted on the perpetual scale of … things

First Dates, phone calls, and kisses
In a blink
You’re flat on your face in love

Your eyes in the air
Heart on the ground
Hand in hers

She was rain water
Fresh breath
Stolen kisses and light music with subtle vibrato

A constant
Not elementary one plus one addiction
But one plus ‘x’ equals one ‘x’ equation

You fear shell leave
Shifting your salted world on its axis

Snows still stuck in the tree line darling
And she’s already gone
