complication

conversation at 4 am
and suddenly i’m back in the game again
wit and intelligence
filled with the imagining
of your intoxicating scent
playful muse
dark and comedic
taken with the pictures
of life’s lowest moments
it’s easy to see how
you could quickly become
an addiction of sorts
not just a want for here and now
every 4th word
interrupted by a vision
of an artist’s dream
with silky smooth skin
and a mind like a razor
cutting through the black
and slipping through the pain
and as the sun rises
and reminds me that reality calls
i suddenly see that real is hardly what it seems
and i believe you when you say
you cannot savor the taste of true love
until you’ve felt the true pain of betrayal
i have felt the pain
and i’m begging for a taste
of something true
you say bliss
something you can give
or an empty promise
somehow i believe
i trust every word you say
you see through the wall
and you say
you can’t gaze on perfection for too long
otherwise you like average less
so if this is complication
i’m asking you
complicate me.
