Over Exposure - Poem by Alyssa Lynn

You say I’m your muse, your inspiration, but you said “stop being you” as if being me too dangerous for your health. Like I should walk around with a caution label around my neck. You act as if breathing me in is intoxicating, like any second now I could cause death due to “over exposure”. Like I’m some deadly chemical found in a section with nothing but a scull and crossbones. You say you can’t be in the same car as me, that I take away all your concentration. You say I’m gunna be big one day I hope at least my words are. You say I make time non existent as if your trying to seduce me using the words of poets.I try to catch my breath, you keep it knocked out of me everytime you say something just “too funny”. We’re the kind of funny that leaves you in pain. The kind that makes your ribs hurt due to over exposure. You leave me laughing all night due to over exposure.
