He called to me

And I responded

Birds chirping in the trees

Caught in the trap of love

Drugged by the sugar of your devotion

I walked into a slap


But I love him!!

You don’t know how much he adores me

Fishes swimming in the ocean

Communicating waves of longing

Intoxication of the wine

My eye is black


You don’t understand

That’s just his way

Snakes moving through the grass

Hissing words that last

Believing the opium of the meaning

I am bleeding


I have to leave

He begs and pleads

I feel sorry

Move back in

The stingray pierces my skin

I lie in a coffin.
