Holding Up Signs

By Ella Bowler





Kiss me in the living room

Lay me on your bed

At the end you will cry.

Walk me through the garden

Consume until you’re sick

At the end you will cry.

Let me take away the sorrow

I’ll swallow it whole

At the end you will cry.

Write my name on the walls

love me like a plaything

At the end you will cry.

Fight me, hurt me

Spit me down the sink

Contort me into a child’s nightmare

At the end you will cry.
