"You've awoken all my demons"
She doesn't know how to love
Soft or womanly
Her love isn't water lilies, it's acid rain
Her love is a hideous monster clawing at your throat
Her love is an open festering wound daring you to look away
mad woman, her love is four letter cuss words hissed between tears
"All the men have eaten me alive, darling"
All the men will stand at her altar
and are ready to offer anyone's blood but theirs'
as a sacrifice
Poor child, they say once her father tied her to a railway track at the fore front of an oncoming train
and she still misinterprets it for endearment
though that particular brand of love got lost in translation
She puts the mouth of a gun to her temple and begs you for forgiveness with her fingers on the trigger
Her name is your kryptonite,
you can't say no to her
Mad woman, her lover is instability
Mad woman, they call her fucking crazy bitch ,
ask her what your love means to her and
she'll kiss you when your mouth is filled with poison,
she'll slice open her veins in a bathtub and make you drink her blood to make you understand
in her and how it
to her everyday .
Mad woman, her love is a hurricane that worships destruction
She will tear you apart like apart a natural disaster and insist it is infatuation
Mad woman , she is a battleground
And her battles are spilling over into your comfort zone
Mad woman , all her longings are a garden carefully tended to
Give her too much honey and all the roses wilt
Too much love is an overdose that is always fatal, have you never understood ?
Mad woman, they say when the madness came for her ,
she invited him in for coffee,
and then she slept with him.
Maybe she thought it was better than being alone.
