Why did you say that

why did you say that

I don't understand

you nod and ignore my question

not even looking at me

I don't get you

saying one thing and

your words ask another

and you stare into my eyes

the entire time

unflinching in your

sarcasm and individuality

that changes around everyone here

"what"

"nothing"

you say something

then

"just kidding"

why add that

do you think I don't get the joke

I guess I don't

but that's not the point

and your words are sharp

like needles and knives

but sweet as

sugar and spice

and yes I admit it

I'm addicted to you

that feeling of

drowning in ice

running over every

beautiful barbed wire word

give everything to you today

tomorrow slowly drips away

it's just who I am
