In ruins

‘Why are you so sad?’
‘Because you talk to me in words and i look at you
With feelings’

You are just bones and a beating heart
And a pair of bright eyes
How did you
Fuck me up so much
Just with one touch

My mind is consuming me
I wish you could see

Because i know exactly how that is
To love somebody who doesn’t deserve it.
Because they are all you have.
Because any attention
is better than no attention.

All these hands they felt like hotels
But yours started to feel like home

You are cold and i burn
I guess i’ll never learn.

  1. Stela Xega, I must confess, pouring feelings into poetry is just the way to go. You’re doing great! (Other hands feels like hotels)
