It takes a summer to slow down love,

It takes a summer to slow down love,
a heat to eat the heat raging inside us,
a passion we mistake for laughter
or anger when the days slow
and the nights are so quiet
you can hear every single desire
you’ve ever had and made tiny,
silenced by a world
you don’t know how to love—
so you look up to the skies
and dissolve your woes its song
until the day you can eat yourself
and taste your love ever-sweetly.
