closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love

and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.
