Swan Songs

we shared this bed like teenagers
mincing intimacy, you reached for it within me
as if it needed convincing.
in love with a chemical, it bound us
(i was scared it was only that)

swindled our swan songs like elbow room on a flight
i know you didn't care if i made it home that night
swept all my emptiness that just became un-kept
hid under the pillow, you left while i slept.
