You leave me in ruins
and at the end of each
I'm left aching for your touch
within the realm,
coax me to the other side
but I know
there is nothing there.
You're a dark gulf
at the edge of my curiosity
and I'd rather know a
constant state of dread

So beautiful and relatable.
It reminds me of this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzIivel0VPM
The lyrics are perfect. They say it's about heroin but I think it's about a vampiress or vampire, your poison of choice, someone who gives you the hots but you better not touch.

Interesting, thanks for the link, will listen! And thanks for reading.
by Ben Pickard
This reminded me a little (in content at least) of Frost's 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening'.
I always enjoy the musical footnotes you leave. In fact, I am off to listen to that piece this very instant!
Thanks so much, Ben! The song is from a Spanish drama on Netflix called "The Mess You Leave Behind". Probably never would have found the song if not for the show.
