so you love me

-but silent sorries

-trip and spill

-down your still warm skin

-your lips are cold and hard

-against my trembling flesh

-an unfamiliar scent on your breath

-the traitor tongue

-cuts deeper than the keenest blade

-but still i hold you close

-though you seem a thousand miles


-i hold you

-you shake

-i scream

this is how you love me
