You were built like a black hole | tw: abusive relationship

R E D F L A G S

you are the guy I meet

at a bar I’m not supposed to be at

and when I look back on it,

I think you already knew that

R E D F L A G

You are standing by the pool table

Beneath the glow of an exit sign

bathed in vermilion, you smile

mouth full of dog teeth

eyes made of coal,

you’re built like a black hole

R E D F L A G

the place you find me at

is somewhere in the trenches of

grief struck and mourning

adolescence and adulthood

I am something vulnerable

not quite whole, too elsewhere

R E D F L A G

when you get me alone

you tell me to open wide

While dragging thumb over swollen lip

I hear myself laugh from somewhere far away

But I part my lips, anyway

So you can rub cocaine residue on my gums

Until I am numb, dumb, and stung

R E D F L A G

With your hands beneath my shirt

And your teeth on my neck

And your knee between my thighs

I am elsewhere

Unreachable

Too far for you to touch

So, why am I crying?

R E D F L A G

“No one will ever love you the way that I love you, don't you get that?"

R E D F L A G

“I told you not to talk to him I don't like the way he looks at you, are you stupid or something? "

R E D F L A G

“Whore”

R E D F L A G

“If you leave, I will kill you”

R E D F L A G

“I love you”

R E D F L A G

With your hand on my bicep, I become lavender You apologize, I forgive

R E D F L A G

With your hand on my bicep, I become lavender You apologize, I forgive

R E D F L A G

With your hand on my bicep, I become lavender

I forgive I forgive I forgive I forgive I forgive I forgive

R E D F L A G

I escape
