and I remember
fireworks from your roof
heat lightning mixes in the sky, as if I needed proof
rising up
like a crown of fireflies
for the only set of eyes I want in Boston that night

and I love you
but I don’t know it yet
it’s just waiting in the wings
for a rush of strings and sunset

you’re turned away
dazzled by the sights
and the sounds of Independence Day
if I could speak
it’d all come with ease
a union of our own two states

and I want to hold you close
more than any warmth I’ve ever sought
and if I can’t feel you breathing
then my heart will never beat again

I search for words
but my tongue is often tied
when it comes to saying things that aren’t white lies
but it’s the truth
just the secret to the ruse
buried deep inside this beating bruise
