Monkey


I used to hear need
And see longing
And feel stronger with another

I used to wake thinking
And sleep thinking
And I still dream of such
But I no longer hear or see or feel stronger
I only feel that she can't be felt anymore

I would chase her through quicksand if
I felt she wanted me to
And I want to fight for sound and sight and touch
But I only feel that she doesn't want to be felt anymore
My heart is too buoyant to sink

She used to ask that I stay
I'd give her outs and she'd
Decline
And now I only feel that she won't stand to be felt anymore
My presence is as welcome as death
Not

So now I only feel myself anymore
Lonely overdosed Monkey
She swore
