Poems of Love: Cold

Cold hi’s and cold goodbyes

Fake smiles;

I came thrice

This distance feels so sexy;

Don’t love me, just need me

Don’t hug me after you hurt me.

Sleeping far apart; aching muscles

Sore private parts

This can’t be love, this can’t be love

I don’t know what to name it

You make me feel so good;

I’ll ride you and eat you and

Have you fuck me while I’m stood

Passion; stronger without the love

Pain; but we can’t stop

I’m my mouth; on my skin

Bite my neck; bite my chin

You came but didn’t look back at me

Didn’t look at me smile in pleasure

You came but didn’t kiss me

You didn’t hug me after

Beat me good and leave me dirty

Of you; I want to be afraid

Do you believe me? Do you believe me?

Then choke me harder than I can take!

Tick Tick

Deeper anxeity, louder music
Heavier screams from within
Deafening silence on the outside
Thoughts like crippling metal tins

Who’ll save you? Will I? Will they?
None; because they can’t hear you
Alone, yet guarded.
Afraid, yet undaunted.

All that they give me, someday, will be their’s
Uncertainity and fear
Wrong moves; they’re leaving clues
I’m picking them up and keeping them close.

Aware of their smiles, aware of their lies
Aware of all that shines
Ticking time; ticking time
Some day, fortune will be mine.
