I’ve watched you in the sunset
Carefully letting yourself soak in the rain,
Waiting for the morning to make it all better,
The morning that never came.
I’ve watched you tear up
So bitterly, from graceful sadness,
So stabbing and red from crept up anger,
So utterly, from jokes and lies.
I’ve watched your eyes go from glowing golden
to stained with red.
All love swept away,
leaving your desperately addictive blood,
for me to seek and find and spit out.
“Don’t leave me,” you’ve said too many times,
With trembling hands and pretentious tears.
You’re selfish in the most delicate way, you know,
Agonizing and cool, burning for undivided attention.
So I want nothing but to watch you cry and soak,
And I do it too, because I am just like you.
“Don’t leave me,” I exhale towards the plain, shut door,
In sweet despair of your silky soul.
