.....but love me.

By darkendomme

Use me......... but love me.

Kiss the rasp in my yelling voice 
​Say "I told you so"...if it gives me you
Take your failures out on me
Deceive my trust with your leaving lust .........but love me.

I pay to ride this mental ferris wheel you spin
Revive your youth on the arch of my back 
​Command my gaze upon your devastating armor 
​Feed my addiction with the dope of you against my lips
........ but love me. 

continue your dry rebuke in the day then
​wet your deviance on my tatted skin in the night....
cradle the corpse of my heart in your hated grasp
........ but love me.

Deafen your ears to my safe word
waken your whip from it's slumber across my face
Draw blood from my shoulders that bares the weight you leave behind
....but love me

​Taste the sweet of my weakness on your forked tongue
​Lay blame on me and ease your conscience when in need
Point your finger and tell on me, fate me this curse of you
and rest in your sanctum of not belonging to me.. but love me.

    It seems that someone is putting a finger on the balance scales perhaps. But the true cost of the balancing act is a burden that increases with time. Just a matter of convenience perhaps; I was there once too. Really enjoyed how you skillfully merged desire with the physical in some unique metaphorical musings. Cheers DD! - Dan

    Loved this . The more love someone takes from you the more you take back in return .

    There's so much we put up with if we get that "... but love me in the end". This was a great read, maybe because I still have raw emotions from that part fading too.
