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
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
I love you.
All the things I do
I love you.
And you can’t even be bothered
how passionately I love
that keeps on leaving me.
