Echo Muses 10.

Pinched Love


Hooked to one another;
Waited for a swooning dream.
Wrinkles took the place of sparkling ecstasies;
Bruised in moods…
Capricious needs.
Only he can ever love you with truth.
Only she can dream up the blues.
Waste away in cloud chance.
Wanting to skip forward to number ten.
