When she touches me it's like a rodent sifting through garbage, but it's better than just rotting away. When she kisses me her lips are like chalk. Beneath empty socket eyes compassion takes too much effort. I suppose the dead honeybees suckle withered flowers because they don't know what else to do.

    My InterpretationThey're both numb, going through life without any sense of purpose. I'm imagining one or both of them may be junkies. She's not good for him, but he doesn't believe he deserves any better. If he left her there's no assurance anyone better would see anything left worth a second look.

    That last line is perfection.
