What am I supposed to do

when you look at me

like that?


Look at you

halfway helpless

and let you take everything


this is such perfect pain.


You have me every day

and now you have me on my knees


let me taste what I do to you.


Give me an ending

that is not the end-

it can cliffhang me so long

I have forgotten how we began

and I can write another and another and


We are tangled melded made

and even if you scramble the parts

I can still find the story.
