    and just like we know
    but we never say
    sometimes there it goes
    feelings get in the way
    at times we have to address it
    and sometimes it doesn’t exist
    but still i have to ask you
    what are we working with

    are we working with friendship we value
    are we working with sexual play
    whatever we are doing
    things seem to work out this way
    every now and then we have a bad day
    words get in the way and then we say

    mean things to one another
    you turn your back like you don’t have time
    and i scream at your back and throw things and whine
    and then we get it together
    put our momentary anger aside
    both of us know, we don’t want to be without
    the way that we spend our time

    the coming together as one
    the way we make each other smile
    and sometimes make one another come
    but after 4 years is it that simple
    the spaces that we fill
    sometimes i just want to walk away
    sometimes you just want to chill
    sometimes i just need to be held
    and sometimes you just need to be still

    and just like we know
    but we never say
    sometimes there it goes
    feelings get in the way
