I dream of holding you tight,
Of rolling around kissing you in the night.
Boat trips on turbulent seas, staring at the floating fish coming for me.

Can’t recognize fiction from factual.
We live together but it’s casual.

Dumb internal monologue-
I feel envy when you cuddle the dog.
Make me aware that you care,
Did I just imagine something that’s not there?

We have become strictly conceptual,
Some days we even make it sexual.

News sites spicing up my life,
Reading up on how some poor sucker died.
Dying to see you again as less than a villain and more than a friend.

We have been standing at the precipice
for so long I became a nihilist.
And if there’s really nothing left for us,
when you leave, please leave the dog.
