POEM| Make Me Believe

talk to me today for hours
like you did in the beginning

speak sweet nonsense in my ears
like you did the very first time

spend more time with me
like you do with your cigarette

tell me you love me
because I want to hear you say it

hold me close
like you’re never going to leave me

make me believe
you’re not going to wreck it all
