I’m trying to medicate. Swallow my pity.
Wish you’d stay with me. Tell me it’s easy.
Cut me a bouquet. Don’t let go.
Lace your fingers around my throat.
Make it safe. I’m afraid.
I swear I don’t believe in much.
A halo below. A halo above.
I’ve got your petal on the tip of my tongue.
Call it a ritual. Call it protection.
I’m trying to medicate. Erase my body.
Replace it with anything.
Place it beside you.
