To tell the truth
is to tear my tongue from its
root and spill blood
into a glass so you can
drink it;

your mouth tasting
all I'd ever tasted in
love before--

       before there were
       roses on the benchtops and
       kisses stolen between kisses
       given and a hand on my hand
       saying more in its touch than
       you ever could with your words.


-- I'd learnt that love
isn't swallowing fists and blood between
meals.

Damn. I feel like you're writing my life. That's the greatest gift a writer gives to me. They take away the aloneness.
