37 (who?)
you sucked down cigarettes like
they were lollipops and
breaking hearts was just a
childhood thing,

but your nail beds were bleeding,
spurting piss and "i'm sorry"'s
from the quick.

she still packed juice boxes in her lunch bag
and wore scarves
like a noose wrapped 'round her neck.
her favorite flavor was
condoms and safe sex,
while yours was
garage bands and cinderella 99.

she drove eighties cars because
she liked the past
better than her future with you.

and you were scared of conspiracies;

you thought you
were the world wrapped in palms,
no permissions needed.

you thought she was going to save the world.

instead of waiting for
the end,
you brought it with you after
a trip around the world,
stringing her along with your luggage and
dumping her off
on the next train out of the

her tears were diamonds,
dripping like your own cum
off a thirty-bucks-an-hour-whore's
you say goodbye like an
eighteen-wheeler in a wreck,
and she bit into her
own skin,
bursting like a peach,
juices covering her frail fingers.

your own damn conspiracy theories
left you sleeping
in your parent's basement,
watching the moon wax and wane
with every breath

she took.
don't mind all those sexual references if you caught them.

I swear I'm having dejavuu over here, like I've read this before, mainly the 'you sucked down cigarettes like they were lolipops' bit.
I think I may have seen it pop up in my subscriptions back in January, and read over it but never read the entire thing.
Sorry I waited this long to read this amazing piece, I love the comment on the scarf being a noose.
Beautiful work as always.

Probably needs a mature content tag for all the inuendos, but nice poem!

thank you!  but honestly, i don't feel that it needs one.  if you understand the inuendos i've put in there, then you already have an understanding of the topic, so i don't see it as a problem, you see?
