just a warm body

I want to feel the touch of another person on my skin.
I want to soak in their essence through heat osmosis.

I want to feel their heart beating next to my chest.
feel their breathe on my neck.

sometimes it seems as though maybe it doesn’t matter who.
Just want to lay next to someone and have this exchange
with nothing attached to it.

I just don’t want to be responsible for you.
I can’t even take care of myself
much less care for another person.

Maybe I am projecting but seriously
isn’t that why people have relationships.

I can be responsible for you like
your my bro and I got your back.

& yes I just went there
what yah gonna do bout it?

But I am not responsible for your happiness.

I am responsible for being a warm body.
beneath you
next to you
on top of you
