"People change and forget to tell each other."
You're the Damn Prickliest Man
You're the damn prickliest man I've ever loved.
I haven't got you straight yet.
Who are you?
Just when I think I get it,
think I see what I am to you,
what you are to me,
the world shifts under my feet again.
There's no comfort here, no tenderness.
Just an excess of love
with no place to go.
