i am mad because of you, because of love
something scratching at my skin
buzzing in my head
all this guilt from screwing it up

i can't help it that sometimes
i act like an animal
untamed and wild and foolish
i bit you hard, babe

you don't understand the way i think
how my feral mind never did become
accustomed to the restraints
required for a symbiotic relationship

i've been sulking in water, sinking
my nose just under
hiding and pouting and pacing
and waiting for forgiveness
