comfortably lonely

blue moon rising
new orleans
looking forward
but feeling reversed
you are a blessing
i am cursed
for when you feel better
i might get worse

but there's a way to get through this
quiet patient persistence
but love doesn't work
the way it once did
i dreamed we kissed in our sleep
but i wake to darkness and feel empty

at least we drank champaign
and grew new wings
can we fly again instead of
always staying comfortably lonely?
but that's okay, it's the norm for me.

i prefer the cold
the heat feels unhealthy
burns to the core
clothes get too heavy
i like to cover as much of myself as i can
i never felt right inside this body
i get better whenever you're here
misplaced affection wrong directions
we move somewhere
with miles in between our hands
i want you near
so i can get used to something other than the fear.
