To be the sleep you slip into
A dream that doesn’t wake you.
For the love of fate and all
Things destiny, pull me in.
I lay begging patiently.
A gallery of vulnerability, and
A wall of strength.
I fear the end of our embrace.
You will be back,
Though I beg and plead.
You don’t owe me
But you always return eventually.
I long for you.
And I don’t think it’s fair.
But soon the sky will open,
And I’ll have glitter in my hair.
What did I do to hurt you
For you to hide away
Depriving me from the only thing
I need, your warmth, I need
that invisible heat
The fusion of our chemistry
I take in your light and it darkens me
And I reflect enthusiastically.
But you’re foggy and sheltered.
And you hold back, so cruel
Do you want to watch me whither?
You love seeing me die of thirst.
My skin is hallow and pallid and
You’re refusing to glow.
