I ache for you

I tried to touch myself last night

To escape the numbness that I brought

Into this sorry life when I left you.

I closed my eyes and filled myself

With thoughts of a faceless man

Who’d make love to me like you.

Instead of the happy endings that you brought me,

I was left with tears strolling down my face,

But could not mistake them for your kisses

When they fell on my neck and made it wet.

I pinched my eyes harder and concentrated,

Lying in my own sweat, my yearnings still unsatisfied.

Annoyed and repulsed by my failed struggle,

I pined for you and cursed myself

For even trying to move on, it’s futile.
