“…this right now. It sucks because you are a magical person, but I think it’s best to call it a day. Sorry x”

“I dipped myself in icing sugar,
Made myself appealing,
Powdered over the neediness,
The anger, the feelings.
Anything that might leave a bad taste in your mouth.

You licked the sugar off me,
Head to toe,
Then tossed me back on the plate.”
