i’d take
more time
picking a pen
than
choosing words
for her
but you
pouring over
every
syllable
cursing those
who’ve said it
better
i love you straightforwardly
without complexities
or pride

fuck you
that’s perfect
i’d shower her
off
of me
wishing you were
there
and then
restless sleep
too many voices clamoring
to be heard
none of them you
none of them me
really
but
i hear you now
it makes me
laugh
because
it’s just
because
the hell was i
listening to
before
you know
you don’t complete me
that’s silly
you don’t complete me
but you make me
want to be
more
each day
than the
day
before
fuck me
that’s not bad
