enough pressure

darling
i am giving up for you
my largest victories
and place them under the land
maybe your footsteps will
be enough pressure
to make diamonds out of words in
the dirty sand

gold flakes in some eyes
that orbit in your spinning head
i want to hold it still
stop the drums beating that song
you can’t stop dancing to
that danced your feet away from here

hearts thumping in a meaty cage
and sweat pouring like jungle rain
down some ally way between bodies
that’s where i want to be

but darling the trees are all bare
with leaves that give up no fruit
just limbs rustling in a breeze
where you once grew daisies
in some springtime

enough pressure
