To Love a Selfish Man/A Lesson In Vengeance

To Love a Selfish Man/A Lesson In Vengeance

You asked for my hand

And I held yours in mine

 

Asked for a kiss

And I gave two

 

Lips

Turned to mouth

And you swallowed the sound

 

My hand turned to wrist

And I relaxed at your grip

 

Went blind when you asked for my eyes

Limp when my legs caved in

 

You did not have to ask for my knees

I kneeled at the sight of you

 

Your lap an alter

Your teeth a stack of scripture

 

Loving you meant staying pious

Meant never leaving your feet

Meant taking back all of my body

Only to better serve you

 

Meant only one way out of this empty church

 

Meant a fantasy of eating your skin

Draining your blood into wine glass

 

Sleeping sound with your body

Nailed to the space above my bed

 

And sometimes,

I pray to it

 

Remember all the testimonies you made of me

Laugh at their echo.
