loss

not your average night
dead before you reached the fight
in your belly
lust not necessarily
seeping from your pores’
not your fault
you think you’re alone
and i watch you pick over the bodies
like a vulture now i see you
you’re a scavenger

but i like to watch not touch
he likes to ache not burn
she craves the shame love brings
we hide the things we yearn

not the same sun
burning not shining on everyone
it’s a different world today
to the one on which you first
awake eyes wide all fat and useless
not dependant anymore
you’re a lone gun
in a world without law
