Love Is Cannibalism

I ask you again,

before you’ve even finished reassuring me,

for the thirteenth time,

I ask you if I’m awake,

existing in a time,

where someone truly adores me.

img_2054

I rest my head,

on all the scenarios I have seen,

in my overactive, overexcited imagination,

asking myself why I can’t sleep,

why I can’t breathe,

why am I walking into woe for the hundredth time?

img_2053

I sing my self through sad sweetheart hours,

pathetic and peering at my phone,

wasting all my wishes,

on texts and kisses,

that form a candy trail,

into your forest,

where I will meet my demise,

and frankly,

I will be relieved that it’s all over.

Completely

Say it isn’t so,

say you haven’t figured me out,

ah,

you utter bastard,

you know all about me,

weaving through my wayward games,

to pin me down,

playfully pushing me out of my comfort cavern,

until I am uncomfortable with how comfortable I am with you.

You ask me if I want to live my life alive,

or if I’m happy playing dead.

I said something vague,

and your eyes hit the sky,

holding me so tight,

I worry I will meld with you,

completely.

We take our days,

like you used took your drugs,

it’s enough for me,

that you said I keep you clean,

meaning so much,

makes my wings itch,

but I am desperate to see a new face in the mirror,

one who doesn’t need to impress you,

one who has grown past my need to flee the scene,

when life gets too good.

img_0292

This is the part where it’s different.

There will be days where it’s different.

Like, maybe life really is you make it,

and I’m stronger when weak for you.
