Faces vs Phases

I’ve determined the following things in a minutes time:
we can’t lose;
we can’t win either;

we breathe without being;
without reason, why are we being?

pretentious, pretending and cautious;
I love you.
you just don’t know it;

under a silver sky, a crescent looks down on us,
ironically, it wants nothing more than to come down tonight.

all I want is to go down tonight;
with you in mind –
I can’t do any better,

your faces vs your phases, we don’t have the glare left;
all we have is brilliant displays of affection in front of this coffee shop
and you couldn’t stand to be in there,
so instead; we shall sit and wait

if you are going to die someday, you have to live these days,
as we are decomposing; in periods, we become lesser versions of ourselves;

I will dance away honey, while bees chase me;
but as long as I am stuck to you, they can hurt me, but they will never get the best of me

so far, though still too close,
I come closer to closure, in knowing who you aren’t

something these eyes love,
are staring back at it

your faces are all I want tonight
