Injuring Eternity

Loneliness smells like bitterness and

Yearning smells like desperation

When you neglect time, it doesn’t heal all

It weakens and eats away at everything you love

So much so, that your skin hurts from not being touched for thousands of days

Explaining it alienates people and it just gets worse

And now I'm overthinking about not being good enough

To touch

To love

The clock keeps ticking

And my skin still hurts
