Burn Me Brighter

I will lay in the sand and get tinted and tan I'm wearing. The aftermath of our time together darken me. They say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. And like Joe Solomon said, I'll take it black like you, you who sound sweeter than poolside. Laughter, scent smelling more savory than the barbecue. Simply put, like a sunny summer day. I just want to save and savor
