Complicated

the words fizzle into my throat because they dont matter
they never have
the way your face meets mine is nothing
really
nothing because i cant look you straight in the eye and i dont want to

you are here and i am here
can you imagine anything simultaneously greater
and absolutely worse

you are here but you and i have watched us walk on separate paths
i have waited for your feet to reach mine and they never did

can you be in the same place in a different
space and time with different thoughts
and different worries so disconnected from each other

i think i want to walk away quietly but i cant
you are alive and i am a dead girl in a warm body
a statue in a park webbed with lies from older generations
they speak of lust and love and smiles that melt even the coldest hearts
into something poetic
could you make my heart beat once
i want to be alive
