sweaty as you are

Cover Image

Summer sounds happier

It's the teenage young adult phase of life

When everything is hotter and burns brighter

Driving around with your windows down and

Blasting something that sounds like a smile

You sweat when you are still

You sweat when you move

You sweat when you shower

And when you make love

The only cool place is the pool

Or inside with that fake air that is mean

Or drinking Sweet Tea on your porch

In your shorts made of cut off jean

Sweat as you are

Be that brighter version of yourself

Floating in the water

Where all you can hear is your own breath
