SUBLIMINAL TORTURE

Sceptical opinions
lose their power
in virtual attractions
and like players
of some surreal game
we transfer binary codes
to the streets of our city,
in a form of shared coffee cups
and coldness of our hands.
I crave your brave actions
of (non)shown affection,
that you claim to have
towards me
and
you tease my patience
with a harsh lack of promises,
because you know I’m addicted
to this sweet torture
of yours.

    In my experience promises only serve to instill fleeting hope; its the following through that instills lasting confidence. Fantastic as always M!

    Another poignant look at the beautiful darkness that relationships can create…
    “you tease my patience
    with a harsh lack of promises,
    because you know I’m addicted
    to this sweet torture
    of yours.”
    This the hauntingly gorgeous truth. Thank you for sharing this!

    Hmm you didn’t ask but I shall provide a personal preference for this one. I would have rather read it without it being broken up. Sometimes the lines lose their value. Just my 2 cents.
