Let me count the ways I love you...


I love you like the disease loves a weakened body.

I love you like the dying loves each gasp for air.

I love you like death loves the warm earth.


But why must my heart cry?


I see it there, in the nowhere. I see it everywhere in the in betweens, and the further outs. I see it there in the forests where no one can see beyond the clouds.


Fantasies that I complacently attached to realities. Things that could not be. Things that could not exist. Pessimist am I not. I only know what I know, and hope doesn’t live here anymore. 


Your empty promises that were planted in my silly head. A fool at best, a lover of the best kind. I was a pretty decoration on your four hundred count sheets. A warm body. A silent seal to an unempty bed for a night.


Let me count the ways I love you not, for that list makes more sense than the one I’ve got.
