you want to feel that they like you
you care what they think about you
and you’re smart enough to know that they know you do

drifting in and out of easy
fingers stroking your cheek
you remember an easy childhood
everything tender and expressible
your fragility perched like an easy finch in the smallest particle of your heart

now it’s not so
just reflections of memory
attempting to claw back
but you’ve peeled away and you
know that they know that you think about what they think of you
and you know that they know that you know that
and it doesn’t end you’re caught in a delirious howling

I hallucinate the silence of your skin is a call to speak
My hands drift up and in and out and down
Callouses pulling on rough patches, stray hairs
I dream of romance in flesh
Because soul is too dull, now
