something like sawdust in the lungs,
you have done just a little bit of irreversible damage,
micro-tears in my abdomen.
splinters in my tongue

i want your seasick heart. that pollution.
i don't care if it feels like a car crash,
i want the sound of you breathing against me
more than i want to breathe.

i am a messy creature. nymph of jealousy.
like begging to be let into the spaces between your ribs.
like begging to make home there. build nest.
i want to build a world inside of you. i don't have to leave

why do you keep trying to make me leave
it's been a while
