the poison


i am selfish

i want you seated

across from me

with your hands

behind your back

with no way

to move or speak

as I look 

into your eyes 

and I weep 

with no restraint

so you'd feel helpless

at my sight

so you'd feel grief

for what you've caused

and taste the sting

that poisoned my heart

that's ever so

killing me softly.
