Like Rice

sad emotional love alone miss u tumblr wallpapers (6)

She says I don’t understand
That this innocence fades in time
Leaving scars and reticence
Continuity on the run
These tears run down her face
Like so much acid rain
And I can’t help but sympathize
The apathy run cold in my veins
Straining against fetid bonds
Realization rising in the East
Shaking me apart like rice
Then putting me together again
All black and blue and brown
These scars from winter’s frost
Lasting well into July
And she turns away from me in bed
Body rigid in the fading twilight
Sides shaking with repressed sighs
Finally come out to play
I pretend everything is fine
But I live in a cartoon world
Where nothing is ever permanent
Not even the concept of love
These pieces scatter to each side
Small and inconsequential
As her body continues to vibrate
And I hesitate to comfort her
Because we have always pretended
That we are whole or in part
There is no bridge between the two
Trapped in our own philosophies
Of these little white lies
That resemble this scattered rice
Brown, and white, and misunderstood

Lost in the reality of her guilt
She offers what she could never give
And waits for my reply.
