you’re always looking for answers.
you

want to know why i am ice
instead of fire

how i can talk with a tongue
so cold it stings.

you want to know why
even in the summer months
i shiver

and you’re looking for answers
in all the wrong places.
nothing

makes sense when you try
to read my REM patterns
when

you try to still the
beating of my heart to
listen to my lungs.

darling,
i never promised you’d
find love here
