I want to sleep and never need to rise,
my stomach empty, skin beneath the sheets
of suffocating pounds of warm faux fur
and not the up and down real breathing makes.
I want an illness in the depth of me
to burn my core instead of its upend,
to radiate surrounding dark with heat
and give me an excuse to lie and wait.
I will cry tears of longing for a love
with eyes for no one else, ever before.
Your head on my shoulder, me in your arms;
the seconds lasted days in my split mind.
Away the sentences we speak drift from
the bulk of things we spoke of months before.
I see the wall and want to become some
of what can watch but never take a part.
My body under everything but wood,
the bound of bed, longs to be so alive,
a victim of the waters of self-hate
and drowning thus, and trust issues with those
who say 'I love you'. And this all because
of all the ones that they could choose to love,
I cannot love myself, and how could they,
to someone hated thus, mean what they say?
