Spell

I want to be silenced with kisses

upon kisses that take away all the emptiness

in some loud downtown club

with glass and hope.

where we can’t even hear ourselves speak

because the music is more important

than conversation.

who wants to talk anyway?

about what? how miserable

life is, how hopeful you want it to be?

how people think all this is real?

how Ikea is lonely?

all this magic and no one to cast a spell

on me. all this truth and no one

to say it to. all these lies and no one

to bullshit to. I will always want you

and that is what souls do

when they connect, they have this

memory we can’t keep track of

and in the middle of the day

when you are on the way to

do this or that, you just lay

flat on your face in your car

listening to the same song on repeat

ignoring incoming calls of where the fuck are you

and trying to find tissues in some parking lot

where other strangers seem to be doing

what you are,

holding on for dear life

lonely and tired of the rush.

the age is getting to me

the time it is entering my notions

of what I could never be

such idiotic thoughts

I can never hide from

and no amount of clubs

will stop the mind

so just kiss me quickly

and erase the doubt

in your mind

I may not say it enough

but

I love you.

All the things I do

mean

I love you.

And you can’t even be bothered

to notice

how passionately I love

someone

that keeps on leaving me.

    God… you spoke right into my feelsbrain. I just made that word up. You hit me in the part of the brain that feels things, and makes words up.

    My point is, this was beautiful.

    Chissy! Everything is so beautiful and weaved with sheer madness. The various forms of love, human emotions, tenderness and sensuality…nothing is left out.

    Wow! Such a powerful and emotional piece and a lot of introspection that we all do or should! Loved these lines so much! So true – “I will always want you
    and that is what souls do
    when they connect, they have this
    memory we canโ€™t keep track of”

    No accounting for what the Soul wants sometimes is there?? Really loved this piece!
    Bravo Christina, Bravo!
