infatuation at arms length

early morning intoxications and perpetual insomnia
from the evening before were clouding my judgement

you were driving me mad with your hardened features
because I wanted to ease you out into the daylight

I could see your vices crawling out from under your skin
and eating you alive because you didn’t know your worth

you’ve been rattling around my head and burning ulcers
from my heart with thoughts of the taste of your mouth 

I couldn’t remember the last time I ached from wanting
and I'm caving into myself and redefining all at once.
