my you
ellebelle

i’m midsummer night dreaming about you
 1
(midsummer night obsessing over you)
 2
about your hands
 3
your candlestick fingers with callouses of melted wax
 4
and your cobweb hair that clouds my brain
 5
your broken window eyes that blink shards of glass down
 6
your raw to the bone cheeks
 7
 
 
i painted you as a god
 8
tall and radiant and shimmering with a cloak of
 9
otherworldly light
 10
i made you bathe in the very sun itself
 11
and drowned you in my own sick perfect image of you
 12
 
 
i see now that you do not bathe in the sun,
 13
you eat it whole
 14
until its blood runs over your fingers
 15
(melts your candlestick fingers)
 16
you make my days Romantic
 17
like i’m drowning in my thoughts and tears
 18
just a raw skeleton open to your teeth
 19
 
 
i’m not crying over you
 20
i’m not
 21
i’m midsummer night dreaming
 22
and sometimes midsummer nights have rainstorms
 23
that’s all
