Amygdala, I Can Hear You!

Amygdala, I Can Hear You!

A Poem by Alexandra

I write to preserve my patience 
Lyrical words can not be expressed when all you care about is taking off garments
I leave it for 2 AM 
When the door is shut 
And your breath swallows all the air I have 

I write to save myself 
When you're gone by dawn 
Reminding yourself that another night being half sober 
Is better than being fully awake next to me 

Dawn is the saving grace 
Smoking cigarettes to keep my synapses firing 
While you smoke weed to down the anxiety 
Will never be on the same side of the coin 
Will never love...

I'll always write to preserve myself from you
