Love Poem: Links

Celibate to love
Attachments entrapment
Suffocates accepting expectation

Felicitous suppressants seem vague yet expecting acceptance to gleam
obediently wile anger continues to...
Our bond pulsates as days and nights are misinterpreted.

Inquiry demonstrates how to be a suitable leech
sucking patience from the reins of guided discontent.

Joined at the hip
Severed near the center
Dissected underneath.

What was once yoked to one another now hinges upon swollen pressure
The trembling heat of predictability examines the idea of being apart.

Broken rust the smell
Ripped apart in stillness
Should have left well enough alone at first.
