I hope you enjoy my shifty poetry 😚
You asked me to see some nudes,
Before asking my favorite book.
But I was happy to meet you anyway.
You asked ‘why do you want me?’
“I want to know your beautiful mind”
I replied, hoping for more.
When I returned the question
“Sexiest hips I’ve ever seen” was all I received.
But I was happy to hear your wanting anyway
You acted like your body was
The only gift I’d ever need
while, I was a forgotten trinket
At the bottom of your toy box.
But I longed… for you anyway.
You talked about the world,
Under the embers of your cigarette.
And I so love the way you spoke,
My porcelain skin, stained by my bleeding heart,
But you never noticed anyway.
You asked me over one night.
Why? Was the question on my lips
And when the answer was that
Not you, but your body needed me
I came over anyway
We went on like this
Until I asked a final,
“Why do you want me?”
And at your answer
I turned and walked away.
My porcelain skin,
Darkened now from the smoke of your embers
Split by the coughs your cigarettes left
My bleeding heart filling the cracks
From the wake of your leaving
But you’re… still happy anyway.
