your hands roam over
my skin like submarines
searching for specimens
that could be interesting

i peel my eyes back
to look at your face-
panting and sighing,
you look nothing like
i thought this would be

where are the shivers,
the undeniable feeling?

all i feel is confused,
a bit hungry,
but what will you do
when you realize
i've got nothing?

“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”

Excellent use of the rhetorical question at the end.
