Handle With Care

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Graze my skin with your

nails. Rest that chin on my chest.

Chant tales of forever. Smile and grab

my heart. Chain me to your stare. Mesmerize

me with your touch. Distract me long enough.

Living in the palm of your hand. Handle with

care. Manifest my dependence on your choke

hold. String my spine, control my mind. Crush

my soul. Throw me out in the cold. Tire

of the  man you’ve molded. Loveless.

On to the next subject.
