What it is

Activity, of late:
I must be intentionally
compromising my health

strangling myself
over layers of
what it is

I should be deserving

Of you:
I was ready to crumble
I doubt you have
seen me as something
put together
I don't even know
if I've seen it

But you sure aren't helping

I tore
off my clothes
like the easiest thing in the world
like it would make you sing

It is not a matter of
(whether or not)
you (are) watching my body
anymore

Boils

Boiling boil, I am covered in boils
you lit up in flames
I wasn't watching
I licked the lid
you had to be mine
You let me burn while I was licking
you let me, burning
I entwine you
I tie you
I tried

You, tied to my table
and home all the time
