Do not date me.

I will show you movies,

Read you books,

And sway with you to music.

I will poison your favorite places to escape.

And when you decide enough is enough.

I will leave this substance on your heart.

That can only be cleansed

When I’m in your arms,

And my head is on your chest.

You will try to be clean again.

By bathing in vodka,

And cigarettes.

But I will always shine through.

Being the one thought that protrudes,

In your swirled  drunken ones.

I am an endless cycle.

you will call,

And I will answer.

we will fall back in love.

your mind will learn to hate you,

But your heart will thank you.

I will rub my nails up and down your arms.

But when I go home.

The lines I left will burn with longing.

I am warning you now.

I am the devil in a dress.

With big brown eyes.

And a heart as big as yours.

If you do decide to date me,

I am telling you now.

I am so sorry.
