Those pearls you call eyes
are a detriment to my ability to stay calm
and the poison that drips from your
mouth
drags me into you;

I’m an addict to your venom.
I’m dissolving in your breath.
I’m falling apart on your
tongue.

Your blood carries the toxin of animals I’ve never heard of
but I swear I’d shoot anything into my veins if you were next to me.



There are moments
of crashing silence;
like angry drunk drivers
quietly crawling to their demise.

In these moments,
your breathing reaches my
gut
and your blood rushes
into my
heart.

I want
to claw my
way into you.
I want to dig into your
ribcage.
I want to be all you feel inside of you.
I want to breathe with your thoughts.
I want to fall down the grooves of your throat,
and dissipate into your
obsession.

I want to be consumed by you.
so all inside you becomes

me
and I

consume

you.
