  • you know what this heart that doesn't beat red wants?
    i want you to touch me & i don't mean feel my soul.
    touch me without intentions of starting something good.
    i want you to grab me but i don't mean take hold of me.
    i more than want you to let me go when this ride is over.
    i want you to kiss me yet not for long because i'm not looking to fall in love.
    i just want you to take me while you still think i'm pretty.
    still pretty?
    take me before you discover the things that make me undesirable.
    i want you to grab my hand and take me to the temporary heaven you call your heart before i decide to drag us both to hell.
    -tee smith.
