poetry challenge day 23

(poem that used to be his anger) 

 

you spoke of hershey bar lips longing

to be kissed but getting bitten off

instead – your hurt words on pale paper –

 

you really think i like to hurt you.

my love – i could kiss you & never

stop – never ever – but i must resist –

 

i struggle too.   i too fight with demons

& feelings i can’t control.  & sometimes

i don’t want to.  but you know i have to. 

 

giving me all kinds of ultimatums

isn’t going to help.   our affair is

over.   i have to go home now.   & i

 

think you know – i think you know quite well – it’s

not chocolate to which i am addicted.
