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.
