Slow it down

Chapter Text

You stare at me with those big eyes


So deep and crimson 


And they drown me. 



So i’ll close my own murky, emerald eyes 


And hide in the darkness of behind my lids


Hide where you cannot pierce my mind. 

In fear that one day you’ll chew me up and spit me out, completely 


And I know I'd welcome the strength of your jaws. 



I’d melt in your mouth like hard candy


And you’d choke and gag on my sweetness. 

You’d take a bite of my fragile heart, broken and bleeding


And then you’d smile, and ask for dessert. 

And I’d give it all, all of me… to keep you full.
