You

•✖️•

You

Must realize

By now

These words

Are written for

You

In fact

You

Do, don’t

You?

My clever

Little Never

Observant

Little curse

I see

You

Too, I see

You

Seeing me

You

Are he

Who supersedes

My alchemy

You

Are he

Who foregoes

In favor of woe

You

Are he

Tasting

My nakedness

From a distance

That’s safe

You

Are he

Desire misplaced

You

Are he

Found in sound

You

Are the lapis eyes

The sad smile

The maybe

After a while

But also

Not today

You

Are a prisoner

I

Am the key

So much

For second chances

So much

For fantasy
