I Can’t Simply Love You; I Want To Lose Myself In You


I could never do
as petty
as merely
love you

I can only
hurl myself
head first
into your lion’s mouth
for you to devour me whole

burn down your house
so we can fuck
weightless and worry free
in the ashes

throw ourselves
from an airplane
without a chute
without a care
naked and intertwined
biting and clawing
all the way down

beg you
to drive me
smoking and consumed in flame
till my wheels melt
on the pavement
and you

abandon me

A blissful
broken wreck
on the side
of the road.
