Wild Things

He left me sinking

Salt filled

And sea ridden

Riding on a wave of...


Nothing.


The echoes of words:

She stripped down & they beat her

Within an inch of her life


Someone else's child

Someone else's

Alibi


But I love the way the sugar falls

Scattered round a tea cup

The slow filling of wine

Into glass

The swirl of milk

Clouds

Into coffee

Into nothing...


Like her

Like me

Like her


Nothing.


They liked her

And left me


And now we are both: Nothing.


I'll eat you up, I love you so...

Ferocious animals

Untamed

Uncharted territory

And an echo of truth


It always happens to girls this way...

Raised on competition.


Devour

And devour

And devour


…into Nothing.
