Geek on a Leash

from by Rude Geeks



playing the victim or a willing martyr?

either way darling: i bled for you.
bearing your cross while building my own.
vulnerable devotion; love as obsession.

defeat only set in when i was left alone—
licking my wounds, watching colours fade.
you were my struggle, my aching solace—
discarded, left to drown.

always picking you up—
i was your crutch.
desperate adoration. craving your affection.
through half closed eyes your flaws meant nothing.
perfectly broken—
i couldn't ask for more.

drowning at the bottom of this well,
waiting for you—
throw me the rope.
