We go for all or nothing,
since we know each other,
since we feel the pain
of the awareness of our wants,
the hope they won’t lack,
the loneliness of knowing
there’s no one else, but us,
since missing each other
is our new pastime.
Since love is the world and promise
we make together,
and the everyday future
built by our dreams,
a song that we don’t hear on the radio.
Since we need to outlive the summer
walking at night with no wallet,
since till the end, it lasts forever,
and it’s always saying always,
never saying never.
Since shaven legs and midnight doughnuts,
and switching the lights off when the party is over,
healing our own wounds, wiping our own tears,
and mustering courage when we are awkward,
since poker face, while we stake it all.
Since love is what we get
and what we give,
it never strikes, but seeps
through our pores and into our veins.
Since we’ll be dust together
when the time comes,
Since we have nothing,
but we go for all.
