:: Do Not Blink ::


:: Do Not Blink ::

Do not blink your eyes, when you tell me, I love you.
It undermines the romanticism, rouses it
Like water vapour, from a morning cup of boiling tea,
That folds into the waking mist.

Do not purse your lips, when you tell me, I love you.
It reduces the credibility of your conviction, crushes it
Like a empty can of Coke Zero, compressed by an angsty teen
And thrown into the recycling bin.

Do not even attempt to, tell me, I love you.
It brings about expectations, yet none it fulfills.
Instead hold me and show your affection from a hug
And let your movements do the part.
