to be loved

By Sara Published 4 months ago 1 min read

you will kiss

my hand gently

get down on

one knee

to fasten

my shoes

but i will step

on your palms.

you will grow

a garden

so you can

give me flowers

but i will scatter

the petals

to die

on the concrete.

you will tell me

you love me

every night

until my throat


and the chains

of your heart

that never leaves

dig into my wrists

and i will run

as fast as

my legs will

carry me.


i will

eat tears

in my empty bed

and i will

curse the day i

met you


i hate

to be loved.


For Paul’s challenge ;)

I hate the word love and I love the word hate….

    Love is really something

    I was beyond excited when Sara the one and only Sara threw her creative prowess into my challenge and you did not disappoint. So contrary, but also understandable. Loved this...thank you for entering my silly little challenge. Well done!

    Very good, that evocation of how stifling love can be, but also how self sabotaging we can be.
