So now I’m in the dark- facedown
waiting for you to come inside-
not sure why
It’s complicated already between you and I- face to face
so facedown won’t change.
I’m secretly hoping your warm breath behind my neck will make things alright and that the scars in the front can’t be seen from the back,
I so desperately want the innocent part of you to crawl into me,
to feel a stirring of life inside,
to know I can feel alive again with the turn of your key and leave the bad boy, I’ve come to hate, facedown
like you always left me.
