Bathed in your thought stream
Remnants a thick coating
Your voice a blanket
more real than the words
I didn't even hear them
Your touch was all I heard

Tangible Illusions
the texture of plasticity
Chills like letters
I forgot to read
Tension as a space
a scale weighing breath
Waiting for release
Memory as myth

Gaze from beneath the surface
of water I'm submerged in
My disconnection
to your bond with reality
At home in your discomfort
in things that you cannot see

Salivate delusion
Lick your lips, a glimpse so sweet
Chills like the air
underneath my feet
I live next to my skin
Nothing to satisfy
There I watched a film
it changed every time

Finger tips as reference points
Feed your lips the sweetest noise
Words define themselves
they define, they
Watching growth in a glass container
Breath fogging the view
Listen for something familiar
Listen, familiarity brings pleasure
Ongoing motion doesn't stop
it just stops going forward
Dive down and it becomes more real with every pull
In a waking dream
my shadow said the same thing
I look at you beneath
the water I'm submerged in
