Obligatory Love – May 31, 2019

Working the room,

A Filial beloved

Drowns in

The must permeating.

~~~

Building,

Layers on skin.

Blinding eyes

To truth.

~~~

Sitting, solitary.

An empty room surrounds me.

The chill of metal

On my legs

Pressing into my hide,

As one, we sit in place.

~~~

White walls

Evade emotion.

Fluorescent bulbs,

No windows

Seal the tomb.

~~~

Until the click

Of the knob

Twists

And pops.

~~~

Within a split second, held,

Shedding

A cell wall of filth.

~~~

As the world is let in

To see obligatory love

Breaking away,

Clearing a path

For you to see me

For the first time.
