Feb 2014
he didn't **** me with kindness;
he killed me with blue eyes that
sometimes looked green and
lips that he had a bad habit of biting.

he never took a walk on the wild side;
he took a walk down the street toΒ Β 
my front door and sat on my porch
all night, even though we weren't talking.

he never broke any of his bones as a kid;
he broke every vertebrae in his mother's back instead,
intentionally stepping on every crack
in the sidewalk outside his elementary school

he never bought me flowers;
instead he called me a wildflower, ripped me from my roots
and put me in a vase for all to see, sustaining my life long enough
just to watch me wither and die.
