You don’t deserve my overthinking

I rained thunderstorms seeking the thrill of high tides while you lazily glow moonlight onto the quiet ebb and flow.

you reflected a kind of dimness that I can’t decipher. Left a silence that I don’t allow.

The emptiness threatened me to act nonchalant.

But inside, you cleverly beguiled me into a frenzy.

It didn’t take me long to catch on.

Sugar, you can’t fool me. I am not the bare skinned ones you chase. I know what I am worth.
