Remember This

I will unwrap all of me
and lay myself naked
at your door,
but remember this:
I will bite back.
With every promise
you have broken
and every lie
you have told,
I will bite back.
But if you would meet me,
naked and aching,
I would give back every promise
I have broken
and swallow every lie
I have told.
I would give back,
everything I have sworn
and the little I have left,
to the one brave enough
to bare their filthy soul
next to mine.

  1. This poem is right where I am with my ex lover! I gave her all of me. I bared my soul to her, she took my breath, my love and devotion without a thought she opened up and poured out the contents! When she was done there was nothing left but a shell of who I use to be! Thanks so much for your words and illustrations!
