attention depleted

adjust your expectations
take this path of least temptation
terror only comes if you
evoke the side of yourself that put you there before
not one day goes by that i do not write to you
tossing aside the unimportant possessions
in an effort to run the longer race
oil the engine with a few really good books
narrow down the confusion and remember where i am
dedicated to granting my love’s every wish
each day a meal of whatever she wishes
pleasing those eyes reveals a smile
like the grin of a snapdragon when the sun creeps in
each thought is her finger running along my skin
that makes me twitch and have lines like a lazer lightswitch
empty as a clockface with no numbers
don’t want free time anymore
