100 Issues for 100 Days: #88

#88: Soothing Psychosis

**dedicated to Christopher Sean Whitman**

I need your soothing psychosis
The obsession that sets me free
Your eyes burn with intensity then
Burnout, flat, empty and dead
Because you don't want to show your pain

I touch you and you flinch
While I smolder
God help me
Teresa falls up the stairs
And I tumble down into love

A nice, shy boy
Trapped in the mind of a killer
Pulsing, red beats
Pump blood through my serrated heart

Your kiss like stone
Massage my lips with fear
Caress me with heartbreak
And frighten me with your love
