I am $​$​$

from by Rose Droll



the heart is a liar i'm playing with fire the coast is a walk away and i'm sunk in desire. my heart is a liar pants on fire got me singing stupid songs about love and desire. i can take it in a text it's best to test the cesspool lest you feel you made a fool of your single self, the self i see wrapping willow leaves around your reasoning. you have no answer that justifies it lives it dies undercover upstate blue eyes cuddled drunken in a dark but safe place (disgrace: leg space. safe base: my face). cover cowardice like awkward boyhood whiskey kills it wills your old man emerge. you come around like a boomerang, the song you sang what rain, what a goddamn killjoy. all the shit that you can keep the fuck back, sad sack quite the silent madman has taken over when i'm drunk or sober. where's a clover when i'm young and i'm free i got what i need so why do i want your arms around me. i cannot say why you're facing away. your first drunked lean on me lit fire to stay.
