"Hello" he said
In black night
No stars

Vulnerable
Raw to the bone

"I can't let you"
He said

I can't let you
Enjoy
Love
Feel

You aren't allowed to
Enjoy
Love
Feel
Breathe
Live

Any happiness
In slight form
Comes with consequences

Sweat stains
***** stains
Blood stains
Heart stains

"You're all wrong"
Distorted
And strange

No breathing
No living
Or else

He will always be on your shoulder
Pecking at your lungs
Eating at your brain

Until there is no
Meat on your bones
Feeling in your fingers
Thoughts in your head

Until that vulture
Carries you away
Makes a nest with your hair
And slumbers
In jutting hipbones.

*"Zero in tennis is love. I finally get it."
