Affairs


I am wanting the broken meaning
I crave the hateful lust of fear
Affairs...are all I know

This friendship is unreal until
I push it to it's very limit
She may be yours
You may be his
But I will cut this trust
Affairs...are all I know

Oh, come over with no expectation
No toothbrush, no prior understanding
Then wake up here tomorrow
Affairs...are all I know

I actively seek the tormented tears
The hollow satisfaction of numb shudders
With flesh I shouldn't see, let alone touch
I've been damaged this way for years
Affairs...are all I know
Affairs...are all there is

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
