maybe’s & what if’s. also, could be’s : run.

this will cost you

i will crawl under your skin
swim in your blood
inhale your breaths
linger in your limbs
twist in the raised hairs on your neck

i should have led with that
my apologies…

loving me,
it will cost you
i will cost you, pieces you didn’t earn
ways you thought were your own,
are mine
no pennies to toss for wishes
i am…OUR destiny

maybe,
you will want to run

you should!

i am more than your hands can hold
i will spill over and out of your bottomless cups
i will consume you
sip from your flesh and drink from your mind
spreading your moist in the folds of dried longings
dabbing your sighs behind my ears
pouring your voice into rotting walls of crave
i am more than your cup can hold
i will devour you, in return

i should have led with that
my apologies…

my heart will be yours
it will cost you
you will cry tears not paired with pain
the nights will be longer that the alarm you set to remind you not to stay
whispers on absent days will leave voices scrambling in your head
racing pulses when i am not near…
my love will cost you

i should have led with that
my apologies…

maybe,
you will want to run

you should!

could be,
i am just too much for you
i cannot be ignored
it will be impossible
to NOT love me

what if,
you’ve met your match?
