The Love Only Comes When He’s High

black-and-white-drops

The love only comes when he’s high

It comes in bursts of light

It comes like fireworks exploding from his heart

It comes in manic streams of words spilling from his dry lips

It comes radiating from black pinned pupils

The love only comes when he’s high

It comes like an oasis in the desert

It comes like the whipping wind of a sandstorm, the grit filling my eyes

It comes like a bolt of electricity from the defibrillator to revive the heart

It comes like an anchor dropping into the deep black sea

The love only comes when he’s high

It comes filling me up and leaving me empty

The love only comes when he’s high
