Unrequited Love for a Mosquito

She is a mosquito

She just can’t get enough

I have blood too much blood

I’m full of it

It’s not going anywhere

I keep pumping it out

Shouldn’t it be going somewhere

I’m bloating, bigger and bigger

It’s seeping through the cracks in my skin

This is it, I’ll explode

I guess she didn’t want any more blood

 

 

Gateways to another world

The ins and outs of a voice ringing in my head

Barely recognisable, but there

She grounds me

I’m tied to her

By an invisible cord

Lassoed by affection

It’s sudden light illuminates me with self reflection

I can feel her watch me lovingly

I look down with shame

At my broken skin, eyes leaking black

A single solo breaks out in my mind

I am lifted by a cloud to the skies

Ever upwards, ascending

Into her eyes

As I enter their gateways

A world of utter tranquility lays before me

Vast forests as far as I can see

Tall pine trees huddle around me

Calm, flowing rivers

Rocks covered with moss

As time goes on

The forest hosts a party of stars

To welcome me

Starlights appear

We eat and drink together

Telling tales of happiness

Discussing the beauty of this world

I close my eyes

Everything is here

reopening them

I find her looking at me still

Her eyes wide open

Everything is here
