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.
