Staking Claim

I should have known!  
That, "Get off my porch" routine,  
when I come sniffin' 'round  
on heat,  
You, trying to deflect  
in case...  
... that fucking Universe  
plays its god damn tricks.  

I come to you  
with tears  
and you lick them off  
and then open my lips  
and slide in there  
with your care  
and strength  
and ease  
and I'm begging  
"Please, make me feel  
something other than pain",  

But you, you say  
"No",  
and show me.  
Time nicks and bleeds,  
and we suck it -  
dry.  
 
You heal me  
with words  
unheard  
and I feel something  
other than pain.  
An ache...  
 
I can smell your poetry between my legs.
