gentle reminder (!)

my baby he loves me

so he tells me (you’re a chore) to

break me open like a tidal wave and

i will always return to him to this love      

this is love

and glory

despite how

he was dancing with other girls a few nights ago

told me (don’t overreact)

i fell apart instead and

i forgot how to sleep      and i read somewhere that

this is how you go missing but

my baby loves me  — i swear it  —

he told me last night over the phone

but

i’m afraid he never knew what love was and

i’m afraid that he’s taking all of mine so

my friends told me (let him go

block his number

delete his memory) cause they saw the gun in his hand and

i dodged the bullet i

can’t outrun his shadow though so i

keep it on a leash.
