i don't love you but i need you
to love me. to
text me first and not let me say goodnight.
i never find the strength to stop myself,
i am, desperate, in your eyes -
i am desperate in my own.
words repeating themselves, yours too,
like we actually get along?
we're cut from different cloths, i barely
look you in the eye.
but i still want to hold you,
to feel some primal connection,
to finally know
there is something primal
