The Greatest Compliment Unspoken
The gift of your presence in my existence is the greatest pleasure
Every atom and molecule ceases motion when we are together
Falling endlessly for you as your past lives are revealed when our souls embrace forever
This ravenous desperation I can't deny
This anti-grey matter euphoric high
I want to confess you this so bad
But you look me in the eye
Then I.... *sigh*
I mean I can't tell you how sharing the same air leaves me breathless
But I can go on for days about our favorite show on Netflix
Like "remember when Jim and Pam..."
I don't understand
Your touch traps my body and elevates my mind into an orgasmic trance
Your gaze pierces my innermost
Melts my core where I stand
(Oh shit here you come)
"Remember that time at Coachella? Odesza brought out the USC marching band."
There I go again...
Spouting all this incessant bullshit that does nothing to prove I care more than the next man
You love me anyway though
Honestly an ugly truth harder for me to swallow than you will ever know
I get it
Actions speak louder than words
I wrote this
I can't speak
That's so fucking absurd.
