attention war

i’m in an all-out war for your attention;
battle after battle; lost limbs; lost lives;
i’m only making marginal progress,
but i’m going to take this fight to the shores
in an all-out invasion; separation by ablation;
so i can sneak in there, put my face in front of yours;
my heart beating on top of yours;
my lips hovering above yours;
i hope this war is worth it,
and
not
me
just getting bored with my whores.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
