head underwater knees against floor nobody's daughter not anymore tongue - tied & slackjawed withholding & withdrawn no means no. you know that, right? & also no is "not tonight" head underwater eyes on the prize nobody taught her to apologize tongue - tied & lockjaw withhold & then, withdraw no means no. you know that, right? & also no is "not tonight" give pause to laws that laud the monster give pause to laws designed to keep our heads underwater no means no. you know that, right? & also no is "not tonight"

strong arms no spine that's the way I like my men unarmed this time so we try to hold it together again slow but dangerous in love & not afraid to show it waiting for the right person who'll finally fuck me to shostakovich red lips quick wit that's the way I like my women her hips make it worth the awkward rhythm slow but dangerous in love & not afraid to show it waiting for the right person who'll finally fuck me to shostakovich shrink from touching' starve ourselves & speak in boundaries nothing else strong arms no spine that's the way I like my men unarmed at all times so we try to pull it together again fragile no spine I'm more jellyfish than human now that you're finally mine I've got no idea what we're doing slow but dangerous in love & not afraid to show it slow but undercover tough & frightens you to know it slow but steady wins the race your need for speed is showing waiting for the right person who'll finally fuck me to shostakovich shrink from touching food for thought we speak in riddles loves me, loves me not when touching starve ourselves forget the flowers nothing else

scared of heights I watch you fall four stories left alive, you hit the ground before me hate the building not the concrete can't explain it if you let me hate the building not the concrete can't explain it if you let me misty-eyed we read & fall for stories mystified by verse & allegory resonate with every author long after we're over love your book but hate your posture not to mention lack of closure resonate with every author long after we're over won't you call again? we could still be friends twist the meaning of my words to suit your needs no, you know what you heard no, you know what you heard the same story over & over again scared of heights I watch you fall four stories terrified I watch you fall for stories overnight you hit the ground you left before I made a sound you left before I made a sound you left before I made a sound the same story over & over again the same story over & over & over & over again never mind, you always fall for stories won't you call again? we could still be friends

in a few years I'll come home once the dust in my veins has settled hold your tears I'll come home once I learn how to deal with this coal - bellied kettle my conscience, you call it, it leaves you unsettled my conscience, you call it, it tastes just like metal I'm nauseous, you called it, I never felt solid red sky in mo[u]rning the funeral march is at dawn the moon gave no warning whose side are you on in this coal - bellied kettle? the red sky in mo[u]rning leaves you unsettled the red sky in mo[u]rning tastes just like metal the crows tried to warn me I never felt solid I never felt nauseous I never felt in a few years, I'll come home once I learn how to deal with the fact that you're gone in a few years, I'll come home once I learn how to deal with the fact that you're gone in a few years, this poem will be once how I dealt with the coal - bellied kettle my conscience, you call it, it leaves you unsettled I'm cautious, you called it, I taste just like metal I'm making you nauseous I'm noxious you felt it in a few years, I'll come home to a red sky in mo[u]rning in a few years, I'll come home to a red sky
