right before she tells you it’s over
by Brody McVittie
She’s the kind
who’s really just not.
She’ll give you the eyes that say
before pushing her lips to say
And she’ll turn her head
just a little to the left;
and the look, you think, is just right
and you wonder where to take her next
and she’s waiting for you to take her home
so she can tell you goodnight.
So you move closer
because it’s time and you’ve put in the
and she tells you it will take time
and much more
before the time you move your lips against her lips
when she moves her lips
and not against yours,
moves her lips to tell you
over dinner you’re paying for
that it will take dinners
and many many more.
She’s every sad song
on the radio on the way home;
and the curves in the road
have you picturing hers
the way you will tonight
