You never thought that in a world with sin and war
and chaos that you’d ever look at someone
and forget it all. You never thought that
plush lips and full hips would turn your hard nationalism
into a romantic surge of youth.
You never thought that after delving into books and news
and guns and views, that you’d want to
run away and make your own world with her.
You never thought that leaving a bed messy
would be the most appropriate decision or that
dirty plates would line your kitchen or that
lipstick stains would cut into your mugs.
You never thought that you’d close the books and lay your head
down and get a solid night of sleep since you saw her eyes.
You never thought love existed in a world with sin and war
and chaos, but you found that someone. And that someone is her.
