alone again and again

so basically
im lying here
in dirty tangled sheets

the window is open
a biting breeze filters through the gums
and into my house

im waiting for the sun to dissapear
its fucking eerie out there
lilac sky and too quiet

i feel crusty and filthy
the tears have dried into a sticky layer
my face is swollen

my stomach feels hollow and protests
im hungry
there are eggs in the pantry but i stay

its not just hunger
its that awful craving
for your warm body beside me

i want to call you
the phone sits beside the bed
but i wont

in a romantic film
this is the part
where you knock on my door

we would embrace
and i would taste apology in your kiss
and it would be okay

if this was a movie
would i smell like wine
and would my fingers be white with cold

its icy now
the breeze has turned into a wind
and it brings in the chill and forgotten hopes

i stare around the room
at my stone cold cup of tea on the floor
and the torn paper lantern hanging from the ceiling

i know why you left
i drove you away
i thoght this was all i would ever need

i need you
like i need air and water and sex and love and music
and i want you

my hand reaches tentatively
grasping the phone
but i loosen my grip

and roll over and fall asleep again

alone again and again
