Sexless Affection

Don’t

say

the words.

Shut your mouth.

Don’t

part

your lips,

utter another phrase.

You

drive

me

insane

with every syllable.

Just

sit

in silence.

Let’s listen to

the blood

flow

in our veins.

The sounds

of our hearts

beating

might

just

drive

us

mad.

Too bad

we’re already there.

Just

the

sound

of your breathing

is a siren

calling me

out

into

the ocean,

far off shore.

I’m

drowning

in

you

now.

I

can

feel

heat

from your skin

so

pleasantly

warm.

We won’t even

touch,

but this

moment

is

inviting me

to lose

myself

in another.

Oh,

my

God.

You are something

I

can’t

explain.

This

is

as

if

I could read

your

mind.

I know that’s

so

insane,

but I hear

your

voice

in

mine,

telling me it’s alright.

It’s never been alright.

You are such a perfect lie.

I believe you every time.

 

Hush,

don’t

speak.

This is all

just

a

dream.

I

see.

Say the words

and

I

will

wake.

Lost and lonely;

my

mistake

was wanting

to

hear

those

words.

I had everything,

now

it

fades.

Like paper

in

a

flame.
