selfish

The weight of my adoration

The burden of my affection

So selfish, these two I share

 

Inhale your love

Exhale my whine

(the faintest whisper I me me mine)

 

I’ve heard that with age comes wisdom

(though in my case that jury’s still out)       

Apathy dropped by just briefly to shout,

“You’ve not any wit to spare”          

 

Soon all that will remain - these words and their pain

So selfish, these too I share


fuck 'em if they can't take a joke

    We're all selfish; it's part of being human.

    What you wrote reminded me of this - H, by Tool (also my husband's and my song):

    Without the skin
    Beneath the storm
    Under these tears
    The walls came down
    And the snake is drowned and
    As I look in his eyes
    My fear begins to fade
    Recalling all of those times
    I could have cried then
    I should have cried then
    And as the walls come down and
    As I look in your eyes
    My fear begins to fade
    Recalling all of the times
    I have died
    And will die
    It's all right
    I don't mind

    I am too connected to you to
    Slip away, to fade away
    Days away I still feel you
    Touching me, changing me
    And considerately killing me

    This is great, thanks for sharing!

    hello fellow hedonist, Brian  I wrote this for some dear friends one of whom has since died. I made a few adjustments  I will note the only wisdom that has come with my age is the realization of how much of my life was spent self-absorbed and unaware so I guess I'm waking up a little
