FREE WRITING

if i tell you to run faster, go slower.
if i tell you to cry, smile at me and laugh.
if i tell you to scream, wallow in silence.
if i tell you to ignore me, bathe me in your warm, molasses eyes and soft arms and let me drown into your body.
if i tell you to abandon me, never leave my side.
if i tell you to hate me,

a fireplace cold
a lock with no key
a path with no end
tell me, baby, 


love me with every breath you breathe,

the marriage between two gods never lasts,
but we can do them one better


inhale me and exhale me, and never let go,

and at least be honest when we start hating each other.

even when we're both holding knives at each other's backs.

because who needs honesty 
when you have years of -


hold me, darling, as the 
sirens call for the men
(gullible, sweet men)
who know no better than 
to fall into the ocean for
the sake of their song
swept hearts -


- falling into shark's sharp 
mouths, digging myself 
deep into the sharp teeth
of a grave, if not just for
one second of sweet relief
before i'm pushing the 
boulder back up the steep
cliff that i threw myself
down in the first place.

the sirens feast and laugh
at the gullible hearts of man


and i wonder if you're laughing at me, too.
