his hot, bitter breath

sends no shivers down my spine.

his touch does not send

sparks of electricity

into my indifferent skin.

his words run through my brain

leaving static whispers

and no trace of connection.

i will be dreaming

of you, tonight.

i am not with you

because i am "faithful",

but sleeping in his arms

feels more like cheating

than being in your arms

ever could.
