A Poem: Unfold 

I want a secret you won’t discover as your lips inspect the surface of my skin
Looking into your eyes to prove that you’re not the one, this entirely new prospect to me
I’ve never had someone treat me so well that I belittle so regularly
You fell asleep during the movie and I traced the outline of your history with my eyes
Each line defining your presence as I memorized the curvature of your spine
I could so easily forget you and move on but malice is forbidding me
