Flaws

September 5, 2012

His clothes smell like cigarettes,

And his breath tastes like wine,

Mixed with the musky smell of him,

She is repulsed, yet strangely drawn,

To him, she is attracted.

A longing is awakened,

And her guts twist in desperation,

For he is so close,

Yet the distance between them is

Impenetrable.

As she feels his leg brush hers,

She wishes she could hold him to her,

Release herself to him,

And surrender.

But she can’t get through to him,

Tongue tied and locked up,

She keeps on drinking,

From this cup of misery,

‘Til it drips and oozes,

From every pore,

Then soaks and surrounds her,

So she is covered in a web,

Of heavy, woolen words

Knitted with threads of pointlessness,

And a lack of logical thinking;

He is so flawed,

But she loves his flaws.
