While you're tangled up in their legs

One night can change a lot of things
And it's hard for me to explain
The connection you can make with someone
While you're tangled up in their legs

But seeing her eyes in the night
And just waking up to her breath
Was what made me let out a little sigh
While making me smile a bit too much

Last night we spent inside of her bed
Allowing us to forget the world outside
A connection stayed between our fingertips
While her legs were tangled up in mine

... you are my **tangled contradiction.**
Sumaiya Zafar

The thoughts in my head are so disarrayed that I can't think straight because they're so fogged up, like I'm watching from the other side of the glass
One thing I'm certain of in my misconstrued mind, however, is that they're all of you...

... you are my tangled contradiction.

A spider web
A mesh, a lattice
entangles our unspoken words
as silence says it all

tangled in the canopy

remembering her voice—
the shape of ancient winds
tangled in the canopy
of my mind

Tangled to the tree

Temporary satisfaction
Split my soul into factions
My love for him is a fraction
Compared to this guilt reaction
And now desire spreads
Like his seed here in this bed
Now a child grows instead
Of peace held in my head
Tangled to the tree
Powerless and “free”
Tangled to the tree
Powerless and “free”

At the edge of dissolution
she bites her lip to lock the key
she dances in her vulnerability
through the blizzard, through the heat
hoping he will come around
and bite his lip in sufferance
and confess
his sins;
all her broken wishes

Tangled in the bejewelled abyss is where we'll

Fragile but deadly.
The early morning dew glistens on the spiders web.

I understand that spider more each passing day,
as our own web slowly grows.

Uniquely beautiful she caught us willingly
with her true realities ignored.

Collecting the tiniest of details,
we decorated the silken strands with our memories and dreams,

Tangled in the bejewelled abyss is where we'll wait,
amongst our pleasure and the poison.*

Tangled and trying to escape,

Caught in the wire,
Tangled and trying to escape,
From lust and desire,
I need to get back into shape.
Entwined in the thorn bush,
Stabbed and bleeding out,
From malice and reluctance,
I need to patch up these wounds.

Tie me down,
A rope around my neck,
Hanging by a thread,
Holding my last breath to fall again and again and again.
Hang me out to dry,
In the middle of a hurricane,
Battered from the gusts of anger,
It's selfish to feel this pain.

Tangled together.

How empty I feel
When you are away.
Nobody to make laugh,
My smiles going unnoticed.
No reason to sing,
Legs unwilling to dance.
My thoughts drifting to us
Tangled together.
My teeth clenched
Around your neck,
Pulling you tight.
Waiting for you
To call my name...

Xoxoxoxo
tangled.

If I'm being completely honest
I love to read the words you write
about me.
No one has loved me more than
you
and within that love I find
peace
euphoria
and memories.
I love thinking back
to when I would creep into your room
for a midday nap
on your lap.
And the first time you held my hand
when we were out exploring
that Monday night.
How unexpected.
But somewhere in the middle of
us
I got
tangled.
And things gradually
changed
the more tangled
I became.
