Premature Love

Laying side by side

hands entwined

you pretend not to notice the tears

that caress my cheeks.

I wonder what is wrong

where is it that I fail you

even when you tell me

that we will be alright.

Time and time again

no matter how slowly I move

no matter how much time I take

you are premature

and I am late.

I wish that just for once

we could be together

at the same time

in the same moment

eyes locked

lips close

breathe intermingled.

I lay awake listening to you breath

my heart breaking in two

our love is never going to match

and I should abandon all hope now.
