Snooze

Oh Dear
Me,
I let my lids droop a little, longing for a dream
Awaiting a story of no consequence
But instead
I jolt
At the memory of your lips
Like finger tips
Stroking shivers on the surface of my skin
And how I crave
Your bite mark
Proof that your tooth hit me like a knife
Your fangs
And my veins
To have met with such certainty,
Telling me that you always held
Such harsh and cruel condescension.
But you were sweet as silk
And recalling your care
cuts
my
core.
I fail—
Knowing how you exhaled
Liking my all
I fail—
Knowing how I would laugh
But mostly
At you.
Always uncomfortable.
I cringe,
knowing
The cruelty came from me
And I retrace all I did and didn’t do.
I held the fangs
I sucked your silent smile
Till it became the loud obnoxious booming
That I hear now down the hall
And in my bed I retch
Wishing
That instead of snooze
Could hit
Undo.
