Sometimes I float
My body moving away with the wind
I float around you
Until only thin air between us
Your eyes slay me
Your face shoves me down
Presses my square inches to the ground
Makes my mania slowly leak out
Your crossed arms tie me
Your lack of fire is what burns me
I try to get away from you
But I can only try to be closer
Because of you I keep bursting.
