nothing but air

Somehow I've lost myself
in the fluorescence of your
words

small, meaningless? apathetic.

Tell me how to feel
-- i do not know. blank
shivers down my spine

blank

i do not know how to love -
how to know.

Something is missing. Perhaps.
In the claws that caress my skull...
they convince me:

i am encompassed by my body - i
need nothing

but air.
