Let me be your parasite
Let me take you in and bite your shoulders hard;
find my teeth tracing your collarbones;
white bones, white flesh,
I want to suck on you with my eyes
trying my hardest to steal any part of you away.
Let me close your eyes to my breath, trust my
cold night air to keep you safe.
I am that selfish leech who would sooner die than
let you go, you’re so warm;
my hands clasp hard on the insides of your elbows
feast on my addiction:
drip a shadow of blood, but
collect my relinquished body and soul.
watch me crumple on the floor in front of
a full moon, transforming by your warmth into
for the space between your lips.
Let me be your hearty, wholesome, nutrient
darkness (and you can be my white sun)
too smart for this shit. too stupid to let it go.
