Itchy Feet

We are explosive I am breathless here I am sick with this He knows There's a distance in his eyes This uncompromising situation As she is awakening He will soon be wondering For how long I will still love him There was never love from the beginning He knows There's an erratic rhythm to my breathing Cracks have started showing From the nape of my back Curling up my spine Trailing towards the opening Just a root at the beginning A leaf for every man Reminding me to stop Acting so hastily I am sick with this I never wanted this The coolest soul The incredible fondness I was only passing through I'd said Then the wanton intensity started to exist I am sick with this He knows Shying away from me Making himself ready To me He was just another Another lover Someone to bide my time Until again I felt the usual feeling Of me falling into the abyss Me getting locked away As she escapes The only way if stopping memories awakening is to Let her escape this With her comes itchy feet As its too exhausting keeping her asleep I'll leave when he's asleep
