"How long was I asleep"
“The whole movie”
Chemically speaking, I know I’m in love.
Organically considered, my carbon
In spite of our nature, my own water
molecules incite an incurable thirst in you,
I’m on your tongue, hooked on these saltwater desires,
But my saline can’t clear you out,
There’s been a drought season about
There’s too much salt in our wounds,
Too much dioxide in our lungs,
Heads are giddy, dizzy spins we fall into
Hearts are edgy, busy lives we spin through
But you’re right- ever the alchemist,
No class could have taught me the arrangements you know,
Chemically concerned, I’ve never felt the sinking like this before
The way the weather is on your side,
The clouds roll through & I hear you
The rains come home & I smell you
The lights grow grey & I see you
Always clearer than before,
my senses still straining to make sense of you-
Take my oxygen, I’m feeling useless without you.
Take my hydrogen, before I burn right through.
