Reasons
I should have told you no
when you asked me to kiss you
The night rose and fell
into shades of lust and
consume
Consummation
Exploitation
Rouge and renegade
I should have known
better than anyone
that distance means more
in the confines of time
This whistling sunrise
with its shades of
disillusion
and abandonment
I couldn’t suspend your
disbelief
Look at my nakedness
I am shaking
Open
Consuming my own blood
Unable to accept your love
