I won’t be the only one eating crow.
Tell him I said “Bang! Bang!”
Because I like that more than arrows like the arrows of Eros that shot me through the spine.
Yeah, I want you to feel this eke out of you like the sun eking out from the clouds
I want you to feel it like my heart felt, being plucked out by a raven.
This is it princess.
I’m going to lay you down on a bed of hyacinths,
Play you out
On a fitting instrument.
(Baby, I don’t mean it all. I just mean most of it)
I should have seen this coming.
They all run like mice from the feline, like locusts from the spider.
You should have seen this coming,
My cheeks are stained with crimson sunburns.
I am the leopard, I am the widow.
I slay my emotions like they were a dragon made of miasma
And run an arrow through.
Just let me know if there’s something worth saving before the sun catches up with you.
