Love For Woman

If you want to scar a woman
for the rest of her life,
if you want to seat yourself
upon a throne of lies
that you yourself constructed,
if you want to tell yourself
that you are more than some
frightened, delusional boy
and this woman is somehow
more, some sort of faerie-thing
that you have bound to flesh,

make her your muse.

If you truly love her,
you would do better
to stab her with a knife
or,
even better,

keep her smile and her tears
many miles from the page.
