why bother?

i’ll always love you, too
from way the fuck over here 

i want new words 
greek, latin, patent pending 
renderings of entangled feelings 
where colors bleed along
dangling strings of wordy 
absurdities 

from dragging through 
puddles and muddling through 
riddles and soaking in 
analysis paralysis night after night…

so now you know why i reply 
in silence 
more pleasant than 
violent gestures 
i’ll always love you,  
two, fingers thrusting upward, 
slightly bruised

"You were wearing a mask when I met you. It was Halloween,” I said.
"I remember. It was a cat or something? Right?" she asked.
"It was," I answered.“All I could see were your eyes. But that was enough."
"I’m still wearing a mask," Leigh said.
"I know. But I can still see your eyes. And that’s enough. My God, just looking at you almost kills me,” I said. “It always has.”
