Hurt Me

March 15, 2010
Would you hurt me,
If I handed you
The knife
(The gun)
(The lie).
If I told you
(Asked you)
(Begged you).
Promised you
Everything
(Anything)
If you would
Only
Just
Break me.

(I could, you know).
You gave it to me,
So neatly.
All I needed,
Your voice,
(Your lie).
Yours,
Not mine,
Never mine,
After all.
It fits.
You were never mine.

You cried,
So prettily.
I wanted to paint your face,
In blue and black and red,
And see
If they would mix.
Would your tears turn
Purple,
Love,
If I screamed?

Would you still love me,
Call me pretty wonders,
In words like glitter
Lovely love?
I could
Take
Your hurt
And hold it for you,
Until you came back.
I could hurt for you,
If you asked.

Would you ask?
Just this once?
If I cried,
Prayed,
Crawled
In our pain,
Would you take it from me?
Or leave me,
(Bleeding)
(Broken)
(Gone).
