Sometimes I feel small and alone Intoxication will beckon me home Only find there is nobody there An empty glass and emptier chair Maybe if I had not treated them so bad Loved ones I would HAVE Instead of HAD
The way we love each other despite ourselves and the universe is insatiable. You’re the feast to my starving poetry, and I’m scrambling after you trying to unscramble all the pieces you let trail behind; I’ve spiraled into puzzling over every detail of your face and the imprints on your heart and the things you’re never really saying but silently radiating
The way we love each other with our whole arms and our whole hearts beating up against one other, magnetism pulling our bodies together all close and warm until our skin is melding and there is no more feeling or air, only lightness and the white behind your eyes
And even then, it isn’t enough—
that can’t get enough of you feeling, so tragic and profound, how it makes you move different, that sudden onset of warmth (and how that cool can pull you down so low)
analyzing you as if you aren’t equally a mess as I am, and you’re so deeply beautiful to me, even if the universe can’t see it yet
Oh pretty things Take me instead and Make me you Oh pretty things I hate the colors and I'm feeling blue Oh pretty things How does it feel to get The attention of the lovers? Oh pretty things Will I ever get noticed Beyond the shell that covers?
