In Love With On Fire
And I say, “This way is a waterslide away from me that takes you further every day”.
And I say, “I’m afraid of everything. An angler in a lake of darkness.”
I steal quotes from books and pop music, and turn them into conversation.
She looks at me like I’ve just turned into fire; the man of self-immolation. I wish. I wish I could just think awkward thoughts and then explode into caustic-yet-harmless energy. I wish I could just burn and burn and burn and never really look up at the sky.
I wish I wasn’t so sad about the process of waking up.
