hello

byLiar©

I've decided
to ride you out

I will be
the duct tape
stuck stubborn
to whichever
hand you use
to free the other

your tattoo
a shadow
    embrace

straightjacket
stalker
shelter

I've decided
to take you on

I'll be
an inverted sore
only clung closer
by attempts
to scratch
the itch of me
away

to make you
wish me dead
for now
and again

to hang around
hang in there
do what I can

blunt sharp edges
bother to listen
educate
    embrace
illuminate

carry
a sword
and a lantern

to see which one
I'll have to use

I've decided
to follow you
down paths unknown
up slippery stairs
to hell, to stars
and make believe

to protect
    embrace
to save you
from yourself

and see what eyes
so black
but so true
can see
