The air is so thick
the intensity and despair
like swimming in soup
this feeling is not rare

It sensed my new comfort
feeling of fresh and bare
vulnerable and excited
I start to repair
while in the shadows
was waiting a scare
a toxic energy
prepared to impair
with one negative tear
my fair skin
and red hair
I beg
I swear
don't drag me down there
I thought I escaped
my mind was aware
now it's pulling me back
I refuse this nightmare
I pray
I plead
trying to end the affair
As warmth turns to cold
I take a last breath of..

See, it's just the sudden realization
That I am powerfully
More excited
Beyond curious
And spontaneously
different than you.

It's not that I don't love you, boy.
It's that I am beyond it all.
I starve for my independence.

I only love you when I'm manic
All those other times?
You're just tolerable.

I miss being cold from my head to my soul;
I want to be ****** back in to the dark hole
I found comfort in for years.
I long for the feeling of lack of touch; hungry for the deprevation of human contact.
So please listen when
I wish to be ignored,
I pray to be unloved
and I beg to be forgotten.
Because that's where I feel
most at home.

We fight day in and day out
Filling voids we fail to understand
Yet nothing changes
We remain a record on repeat
Like an echo
Nourishing every last emotional strand
Thoughts turn into dreams
Dreams turn into dust
We craft days into a delusion
A delusional repetition
For all the wrong reasons
Not knowing what we have done
We obey
Why do we have no guidance
Through ruins we make home
We become truly alone
An echo isn't as beautiful as it seems
An echo is a lie

I think about other men
while laying cold next to you
not because I don't love you
but because you don't touch me
Perri Nov 2018
I wish I could describe
with words of the unknown
the quivering of my organs
and the shaking of my bones
from heat of your mouth,
the potentness of your tone
because with every ' I love you'
I feel more at home
