Barbed Wire Void

so shiny and new
you reflect my image
I want to rub you
and rub you down
to the tarnish
till your ugly shows
absorbing all light
between us

because I am lonely
with my barbed wire void
screaming, gnashing
and you are
eager? vacant?
a warm willing body

I will (lie) love you
more fiercely
than you have ever known
you need me
trap me
try to hold me
I’ll say anything
pack my tender heart
and run

my math must be off
somehow “the more”
doesn’t feel like
“the merrier”

it’s ok
to fake it
I will
