"Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them."
-Lemony Snicket


look at me when you say this
the way my heart aches
the jealousy consuming me
how can this be?
you are
you should be
nothing to me
and yet...

you have me wrapped around your finger
wound tight, going nowhere
you know this
and so you abuse this

look at me when i say this
i want you all for myself
but you want more
than one thing
how can you stand yourself?
you should be broken
like me
because you did it

my trust is petals in your hand
and you're leaving a beautiful trail
why can't i let you go?
like you have so easily
done to me

look at the outcome when we say this
you're left with another toy
abandoned and reckless
i stand alone
like so many times before
embrace me
strangle me
but don't, god please, don't leave me

did you predict
it'd end this way?
my body, an open wound
you with nothing to lose
like to me one last time
and tell me you love me

look at the truths when i say this
i want you, all or nothing
ignore the others
can't you understand
how much i miss you?
my heart, it hurts
but you will not repair it
i doubt you'll even try

so where does this leave me?
with two a.m. nights
and tear stricken cheeks
look at me when i say this:
I need you, now more than ever.
