darling, is this love?


I sat you down and told you how the truest love that’s
ever found is for oneself.
You pulled apart my theory with a weary and disinterested sigh
Sit with me a while and let me listen to you talk about your dreams and obsessions
I’ll be quiet and confessional
The violence explodes inside me when I meet your eyes
Then I’m spinning and diving like a cloud of starlings.
