poem challenge: Personify


Please for the love of god won't you stay
I'll plaster my face with concealer
Coat my bitterly true words with lies like honey
I'll take every jagged edge of me and carve them into smooth puzzle pieces
That lock perfectly into yours
Even if it means shearing off my gasping guffaws and simmering them down into gentle giggles
Classical music makes the space inbetween my eyes itch but I will burn every cd of Wicked I own (6) if you will just stay
You say books and reading are dull and a man's sport
So the only one that will inspire me is Fahrenheit 451
I will shape and polish like a raw wild gem into a wedding ring
If only you will stay
