For you, I’d lie

I broke,

Failing in all the ways,

They said I would.

Dripping down the street,

Painting pictures in my sleep

And if I could,

For you,

I’d lie

 

People who see me,

Shake their heads and sigh.

They imagine the blood from his lips,

Has run streaks in my sky.

They gift me puzzles from a time,

That would not keep-

That were not mine.

 

I laughed.

Two months – tight bound,

Only to find,

I have woken in a bed,

That isn’t mine.

And as much as I want to,

I know,

I would be no good for you.

Failing in all the ways,

They said I would.
