silicon spark

she says i’m complicated
with equations on my brain
i’ve tried to erase them
but the outlines still remain

it’s not that i’m ignorant
of the words you have to say
but each time i open my mouth
i regret the rest of the day

please bear with me
i’m only human after all
i missed the quiet nights of winter
not the heartbreaking words of fall

when the numbers don’t add up
and the spring begins to emerge
i’ll come out of hiding
we can finally converge

my mind will be a blank slate
your words will be my desire
until the sun sets once again
as i disconnect your wires
