Adore to ignore.

All I ever wanted was intimate,

not even sex,

just thrill of flesh.


You fondled the words in your mouth before breathing them.

I envied those syllables.


I do not love you

but it would still be making love

even if all we did was hold on.


I am suspicious of grasping,

how addictive tethering, cleaving ourselves together,

but your proxy created deafening feedback,

skin so loud

I could not read the lie in your glitter,

stop the confession in my eyes,


I want to be unpeeled,

are you hungry?
