Love
(ly bruises, coalescing on too-tight skin) me please(don't hurt me anymore) and forgive me for everything I've
ever done(wrong-which is everything). My first breath, my first kiss- all leading up to my b.i.g.g.e.s.t. sin-falling in love
(there's no place for affection in this fairytale) with a man who won't ever appreciate me(because what am I but skin and
bones and a cunt
?) for who I am(but WHO AM I?). Wonderland welcomed me with open arms(fairytales-something
no one believes in after 8) despite the fact that I was Mad(-crazy) but mercury does that to you(as does acid) so how was I
to know that while I thought I was walking into a relationship, it was really just signing my own slave papers?
Tell me you care-I love it when you lie. And of course you are, because why else would you hit me and use me and then just
ignore me like some streetwalker you'll never see again? But I'm so blind (you've blinded me, where are my eyes?) that
I'm willing to listen to all those words(meaningless.words) you occasionally whisper into my ears(but can I hear, or
am I imagining.all.that?) with such feeling (but maybe, maybe, it's compassion and love and care-and not
rage and lust and desire) that you take my breath away. And I have sealed my fate quite simply-I.still.love.you
even though I know better than to admit it.
