[x]the calm and the malcontent.

Relevant - "Kiss on the mouth" by Our Lady Peace

this swagger
stumbling in disguise
walking in a straight line
a focus to hide
all this writhing within
denial, discord

pained and malcontent
gnashing my teeth in the shadows
i've convinced myself there is
in fact, power here
don't you understand?
i need this sword for peace

your lips and mine
separate only by the tension
as we pause in this moment
where the world doesn't exist
it never did
only you and I matter

we can leave it all behind
right now
shed our skin and masks and reality
i know you're lost right now
because I can see it
reflecting in your eyes
