Pits

It was great at first.
You know , the thoughts that weren't yours.

They were great when you were 
drifting past the sweetened air.
Mind clouded.

It is tormentingly contagious.
love is. 


All things human hurt,
eventually. But we love it. 

Bunch of sadists.
We are.

At first it was great,
really wonderful. All those thoughts, 
the ones that weren't yours.

When its over and the air is sickening.
Your skin damp. Your mouth is dry. 

All those thoughts, those 
lovely thoughts
are
maddening. 

Ceaseless 
Echo

Human things hurt and quiver.
It needs a host. 
Or it feels nothing will ever happen again. 

It is lost. 
Weak. No courage of heart or head. 

What sad things they are.

Human things.
