Please stop
I don’t want to love you

Even worse
Than the mark you left
With your kisses
On my skin

Is this pain
You left throbbing
From here within

Where just as the scars
Start to scab
You’re back
To rip them off

With confessions
Of this love
You say remains

Yet stains my hands
Where fingers
Wrung tight

Eyes that fight
Back the tears
That don’t fucking listen

And drop
Drip, trip
Down my cheeks

Feed so greedily
Onto every one of my fears

That really the reason
Must be
I’m just not the kind
To be forever
