You’ll say that my love is rain warped.
You’ll say that I only know how to take.
Black hole comparisons will be made.
You know you can break apart the shining armor of my body and examine my heart. It resembles a pig’s snout. You can nuzzle your face against it and it will snort my hot black blood onto your cheek. This is the way the machinery of my body operates in your presence.
You’ll tell me that my love is a reducer. You’ll say it again. Your love is a reducer. Say it again. Your love is a reducer. You’ll say it until you can barely speak. Your love is a reducer. Your love is a reducer. My love is a reducer.
You’ll say - Matthew dear, look what you’ve done to yourself. Matthew Bookin - Arvada (via waterandwaves)
