timbre and shoe size

okay so
the more time passes between our seeing each other
the more you become an abstract concept
not a living, breathing, warm body
with that step and walk
tone of voice
timbre and shoe size
no you are / are becoming / disintegrating
into tiny little pieces of data and light-emitting diodes
YOUR TEXT MESSAGES CANNOT REPLACE WHAT I WANT FROM YOU
DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND
I AM A LIVING, BREATHING, WARM BODY
and i want you to hold my hand
i want to go to bed
to your bed
to our bed

i want you,
your living, breathing, warm body
your step and walk
tone of voice
timbre and shoe size

fuck
it's hopeless

you can't snuggle light-emitting diodes to sleep
you can't explain how bad your day was to an abstract concept
but loneliness is heavier
heavier than everything
don't you want me? why don't you show me
just how much emptiness you could take from me
