You consume me to escape yourself .

You paint my body with heavy kisses, making art with your slow grayness. I melt into your cloud.

Your eyes pour over my nakedness with blinks like the hour hand on a clock. You say you just need to appreciate this. Me.

No, not me, 

This.

Your eyes are numb, I am just the body keeping you awake.

I thought the reason your tongue tasted every piece of time was to cherish it. I realize now that time is just something you wade in.

You are a monotone note trying to pull heartbeats from my skin for your own song.

You consume me to escape yourself .
