Little to love
In all the wrong stasis

Like she forgot
There’s responsibility
In stapling two hearts
To one time line

Compromise and affection
Attention and conversation

I hardly get a demand now
Let alone a handful of touch

Like I’ve disappeared
From our relationship
And only my spirit roams
The halls of her chest

And it’s getting lonely knowing
You could care little less
And it doesn’t matter how well I love myself
Without someone to share my flame woth

And now I find little to love
In our tent between the bed sheets
Where once shined light, and now
Lies hallows

I close my eyes softly
Rest my head on concrete shoulders
Burning embers dust my skin
Little to love
Less to fuck
