The Romeo and Juliet Law

by Liberty Sites

stolen glances
3am wishes
songs we sent
saying what we
couldn’t articulate

       -       The Nationals “I Need My Girl” is good too 

facebook messenger
still holds evidence
of a tryst you
would rather have
kept hidden from
our friends

       -       in my head you are my age…

someone else
took me to
the movie
you didn’t
want to see

              -       we’re just friends haha

       -       you sure he is?

so you got a
good morning kiss
on the third floor
of the parking

       - why were clothes even invented.. really…
