You want me to do something – Poem

You want me to do something

You want me to do something

 

You want me to do something

That something isn’t fair

I’m not the instrument of your destruction

The implement of despair

 

You gave me something

A gift you wanted me to share

It was a broken piece of glass

A little piece of a bowl

 

When you look at it closer

It’s a window to the soul

A little shard of intimacy

The knot between you and another

 

Words and parts,

People and places

Events and things

All sorts of feel-ings

 

You wanted me to cut them

A slash that would wound me too

That broken piece of glass

So calculating, so sharp

 

Your desires, your dreams

What do they even mean

Why would you do this

Is your heart that a miss

 

So black and dreary

Full of so much pain

Why do you want to take so much…

from my vein?

 

 

You set me to flame

Truly tell me,

What in the world do you have to gain?
