hastily placed together

hastily placed together

A Poem by Kara Emily Krantz

This is all I have. These ripped up pieces
of passion that I'm hastily placing
together. Here - hold them, see them,
press my fingertips against your lips
and taste them.

I can see your scars, your open wounds
and I know you can't stand the
things I stand for. I'm trying to stand
for you
but you're holding me away. i'm pressing
against the strength
of your hands. there are bruises
on my collarbones
and i'm thirsty
for something

My eyes are so wide with
misunderstanding. My hair
is falling across my brow
and you're moving it out of the way
and then I'm propelling myself
into your arms.

This dance is vicious and I'm
tired of the tune
and all this broken glass around us
should remind us not to have
any more
tea parties.

Being over sensitive is very destructive to a loving relationship, Just as much as jealousy is. Your poetry is always so creative and whip smart.
