Offered Me Skin

I lie here in the mire

I lie here for my desire

I did what she asked of me

I listened to her every plea

----------

I was never hungry

Until she stood in front of me

Then I realised I was starving

Then I realised she was laughing

----------

She said, "Why can't you look into my eyes?

Why can't you look into my thighs?

I give you all you need

All I ask is that you bleed"

----------

She offered me skin

I let her win

But she had to have more

She had to be adored

----------

She stares at the ground where I once stood

She kneels and think "could

I ever have loved?"

She stares at the ground like a fallen dove

----------

She said, "Why can't you look into my eyes?

Why can't you look into my thighs?

I give you all you need

All I ask is that you bleed"
