Delicious Dwindling

Don't leave spaces

Don't leave spaces between you and me.

Don't leave spaces between you and me. Neither room for sorrow

Don't leave spaces between you and me. Neither room for sorrow Nor laughter.

I want peace.

I swallowed your pride

I swallowed your pride as it dripped through my chin

I swallowed your pride as it dripped through my chin and ribbons of desire laced

I swallowed your pride as it dripped through my chin and ribbons of desire laced in a chase of merry go rounds.

Circles

Circles that could

Circles that could never make sense.

An eternal quest,

An eternal quest, You behind me,

An eternal quest, You behind me, and me behind you.

Is this a quick fix?

Is this a quick fix? A pandering of pretentious beings?

Or does passion run

Or does passion run in the veins of the hands

Or does passion run in the veins of the hands which make me quiver

Or does passion run in the veins of the hands which make me quiver as they trace upon my back?

Carousels do stop,

Carousels do stop, as dusk reappears

Carousels do stop, as dusk reappears after a long summer day.

Carousels do stop, as dusk reappears after a long summer day. I could still relish

Carousels do stop, as dusk reappears after a long summer day. I could still relish the sparkles of sentiments

Carousels do stop, as dusk reappears after a long summer day. I could still relish the sparkles of sentiments from the corners of my soul.

But who would I be fooling?

It's a war darling,

It's a war darling, The one that your midnight eyes never seem to hide.

It's a war darling, The one that your midnight eyes never seem to hide. (The one I will never win.)

(The one I will never win.)

-dogslinwriter The lovely @soothrain (aka Anmol) gave me the idea of the title, so big thank you to her. Stay amazing, girl <3
