Poem for 4-4-11


Cut off your hands He said

They are always touching me

I don’t like to be chained.

i said yes.

Close your eyes He said

They are always looking at me

Looking too much hurts me.

i said yes.

Listen, He said

If I am to love you, then you must change.

I’m very particular about who I love.

i said yes.

i said i love you

That’s nice He said

What does that cost me?

i said nothing.

How wonderful He said

To be loved for who you are.

Have you cut off your hands yet?
