Tell Me a Story…

August 24, 2014 § Leave a comment

Tell me a story,
one without the inevitability of reason,
the burden of conformity,
or the viciousness of reality…
Tell me a story that isn’t a cliché,
made to appear palatable,
its wild core relegated to whispers,
dusted up with glitter,
whilst the silent snake slithers…
Tell me a story that is you,
and not something pre-approved,
branded fit for consumption, safe,
a facade hiding the tender girl I love,
a bridge burner- fires from the sky,
one that pulps my heart,
pushing me away…
Tell me a story, princess,
I’am always here for you, all my life,
but heck, I ain’t got all day.
