Weaker than Water

"In the world, there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong, nothing can surpass it." –Lao Tzu

I hate writing
about your eyes.

Your harem probably
already has, penning

cliches about your
intensity. I lust.

I look away.
I can’t handle

players. I can’t
handle the way

you use winking
as a crowbar

to pry wide
my stupid heart.

You, Bad-boy

command I swallow
obvious emotional unavailability.

You’re most likely
going conquistador, cutting

me open. Your
laugh boasts behind

closed doors, mocking
my damn weakness.

I own inability
to walk out.

You don’t love
me. But touch

me deep. Please?
I won’t struggle.
