Fixiated Cry

Gaze into my stare
You have no idea what it means
Untied at the seams
No obvious connection
You smile, I bleed
An ulcer that stabs through my linings
A hurt so serious
When I look to find you
You’re not there
I wish you knew how to catch my stare
Still you gaze…
At what you can’t understand
On the surface
Unable to immerse yourself in truth
Away; fading into me
Not looking at what you’re getting into
Shallow end of the stick-
Menacing huffs of air
Straining to fix the broken enigma
Still clothed, no sign of nakedness
It lies before you…
Comprehension never born
The shallow film consumes you
