panting on your doorstep / like a wet dog / in heat
begging to be let in, scratching paint off
the white painted entry point.
i’ll lay by your feet, let you kick me around in your sleep. i’ll either keep you safe or be the one who kills you.
is that a risk you’re willing to take?
you know i’ll bite your hand if you feed me, so you’ve always kept your distance.
you just wanted a friend / uncomplicated / soft and gentle. you wanted something to love, and i left a mess. your fingers bloody, your sweater torn to shreds, footprints on the floor that won’t go away no matter
how much time you spend on your knees.
your desire was your destruction. i’m rabid,
and need to be put down.
