    You own this


i love you so you love me.
i don't know how else to be.
empty tears, empty face.
empty years in empty space.

simple me, simple you.
simple was denial, too.
empty chair where you sat.
is it as simple as all that?

reaching for myself, finding only you
and a tiny black box that is fading to blue.
everything we say, everything we do.
everything we've been through and been through.
we already know that which we need to know,
but i'm so exhausted from telling you so
and from sweating in your bed.
i know we're fucking again and again
but i can't feel a thing.

what is this we do, what is this we say?
what is this anger that never goes away?
intimidated by your love like a gun
but why can't i run?
