the same way

you say when i’m like this

(bitter as flower petals and chlorophyll in leaves,

lying through my teeth like a thief,

red as a bruise that swelled,

fragile like the mosaic floor made from eggshells around me)

because i don’t love anyone or anything
but how can that be true
when i’m like this only

when i’m asking you to love me more.
when i think you don’t love me enough.

this confession begs the question: is that something you’re ready for?

i could be your diamond in the rough.

(that you can keep,

that’s reflective,

and never breaks)

it’s a promise, on a two-way street.

i’m tired of thinking love conquers all.
