For I am unwanted.

like a rose
you grow
 entwine around my ribs
and crawl up my sternum
to wrap tightly around my heart
intoxicate me with your scent
poison me with your beauty
and stab me with your thorns
dripping with burning sin

and i nestle
like a weed
in between your leaves
to find the soothing shade i crave
and seek your delicious poison
feed on our sins
like the desperate tormentor i am
useless and dangerous
green with envy

holding on
like a lifeline
