Red & Yellow

Turning to the people who do not know me,

who solely see my aesthetic,

my attraction,

my external features,

whose desires revolve around

wanting pure physical pleasure

for they will merely make small talk

without the desire

to explore my soul,

I turn to them

on nights like this

for they can temporarily

distract me from the weight of my mind

lifting liquor to my lips,

making me smirk

and turning my eyes

to face something different,

yes people like these

on nights like this

are the ones I need

for they will not ask

the questions I fear

-POE(MS)
