this rose was not intended to be mine nor was it put in my locker by me.

however, it’s really not as intriguing as you think it might be.

happy love day.

You were a desperate man
Seeking love from delicate roses
Grasping what you desired most
But blinded by her beauty
Her thorns pierced your flesh
Spilling your blood onto the soil each day
And she called it love

What would it be like to have
all of your attention?
lips strong, warm enough, a little too rough,

held against my hollow
my ear, neck, collarbone, shoulder
my intoxication, bent and ridden by yours

numbness. curiosity. fingers
grabbed gripped ground grappled
refused to be forced too far forward

Suave, sensual, daring, dramatic
slipping down something damned

Only comfortable with you around –
bottled up and corked; ready to be lost at sea
