Love Runs Like Dry Sex

written by: Grant Guy


Love runs like dry sex
She walked in & out of love
Opening & shutting the door before & after her

In the beginning
I thought a miracle was about to happen
There was a miracle for the secular kind
Not the miracle I had expected

The miracle
The miracle was how little I was hurt
After falling 18 stories of love
