    God.
    you had such a devilish smile
    but you wreaked
    such havoc on me
    angelic havoc
    old Testament style.
    Don’t touch me there.
    My desire
    love call
    it what you will
    makes me transparent.
    You’ve got to know
    what you’re doing to me.
    I wrap myself around your little finger
    wind myself around you
    in contours of prayer
    twist myself around
    wrap you around me so deeply
    I lose myself a little again.
    Everywhere
    you’re everywhere
    in me around me.
    Wish I knew what you wanted from me.
    There’s really no question
    that you can have it all
    could’ve.
    Too late.
    It pains me to sit in this room.
    I can still hear you.
    I loved the way you talked
    the way you formed words
    the power you had to open that mouth
    and make me see.
    I can still see you
    wrapped in my cheap blanket
    making a surprise for me
    leaning against the wall behind my bed
    laughing
    with that sound that broke my heart.
    I can still feel your arms around my neck
    the brief warmth of a kiss
    the press of your leg against mine
    the heat of your breath on my neck
    the familiar way
    you pushed my hair out of my eyes.
    I can still smell you
    something sweet and musty
    the lingering flavor in the air
    of stale cigarette smoke.
    I’m so bad at goodbyes.
    I didn’t mean to cry
    didn’t want you to see how
    much you meant to me.
    I didn’t want to let you this far in.
