Day 545: melloncolly sounds like it should be a happy word

"remind me why
i even bothered
to love you
in the first
when i could feel myself breaking in the breath between our touch
how i knew
no one
would tie puppet strings as tight as you may
how you'd hold me under your skin
telling me
this is love
when i knew
that is
this is drowning
that i'd sink into you like molasses
and beg to be held there
and you'd tell me to leave
but not make me
