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 assume.

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
in me.
