i forgot
what it’s like
to be
wanted
by someone
i wanted

forgetting
a distorted
ugly
view
of love

to feel
the tenderness
that comes
with just a
look

that might
break you

something
more
than
only
hunger

the
unfamiliarity
of kindness
without
ulterior
motivation

the tenderness
of something
that
may
have become
too ravenous
for tenderness

it changes
the way
you
smell

drawing in
the most
unexpected
visitors

often leaving
the wrong
message
in a
scent

but
you don’t care

when you have
them
who left
that scent
on your skin

which is all too forgettable

you know
because
it is a surprise
every time
