i just know it

Christina Strigas

I have read your poems way too many times for a girl who says no, I know.
I have seen the words before
but never like that
diving deep in my soul.
I shouldn’t, I wouldn’t
but how tempting
you paint it, scenarios
out of my books
in your pen.

I can’t, I won’t
yet how my coat
is already on
my heels caught
at the door.

Words are trapped in the tangles of my hair. I don’t want to eat you alive, yet
I must.
You look better from afar. Please stay there.

Don’t try
I will weaken
stumble on my words
eat you for breakfast
and you will love me.

I just know it.
