Frustration courted me when I first saw you.
How can I select the right words to tell you how
much you’ve altered my existence. I’m afraid next to
you, and the air becomes too thick for me to swallow.
It’s like gravity has a grudge against me. You were
applying your make up yesterday and all I wanted to
do was to shout from the top of my lungs, ‘you’re
killing me!’ Can’t handle it. The thing is that I don’t
want this feeling to ever leave. Before you, days were
all melted onto each other. Meaningless. I’m swimming
in seconds that I’ve logged in my mind of your
smile taking me for a ride. I’m a walking cliché.
Hopelessly praying for a proper ending.
