I wonder how it felt every time
my love showed up in the back of your throat
and ripped through your teeth
Did you chew the blood rose and the thorn
thinking you would find the rib?
Hoping it would bring me back?
But this is no seance
And I am not a ghost to manifest
for the soothing of your regret
"I was blessed with the ability to make ugly look pretty. This is my superpower."
