Numb

1.19.17.// 2:53 P.M. 

You are the drug I should've resisted,
I should have stopped, but I insisted. 
So now I'm high off of your laugh
and time stops like a photograph.
In your eyes, I see my dreams,
though things aren't always as they seem. 
Now I am yours, and you are mine,
but then we're not at the same time.
I'm so clingy, and you're so not,
and after days I feel so caught. 
But I don't want to get attached,
like a lock with no key already latched.
I like you more than you'll understand,
my feelings for you are like quicksand.
The more I move, the faster I sink,
I must stay calm and just not think. 
And now you're more than just my drug,
you're my addiction, and I can't unplug.
You're my favorite thing that makes me smile,
but there's not that much inside that file.
Though you are still the number one,
for anyone else, I'd have been done.
You said that you like me a lot,
though then your story was not bought.
But now I see you really do,
and I feel the same towards you too. 
Now without you, I'd feel so numb,
so we will see what's yet to come. 

- J.T.A.
