You can fall in love with sounds.
A voice for instance.
A certain pitch.
average comfort left unmeasured.
I can still hear yours.
Surprising bass from fragile beauty.
Laughter heard from anything.
A heavy rattle ringing softly.
Say it more to reassure me.
Look at me and say you love me.
Breathe me in from narrow folds,
feel the animal unfold.
realize everything was false.
..and perhaps she was just a poor substitute, for you.
