Skeleton I

By Raven Eliza Hodge

Summer days
Mind game haze
Reinforced malaise
You gave me your drugs
You said this was love
You grabbed my hand
I could not understand
Your breath of booze
Your heart abuse
You said my eyes were sex
Like I’ve done this before
Like I wanted more
But I was a virgin
And you were the surgeon
You cut me open
You were so unaware
We were so unprepared
But I am dear Eileithyia
I relieved your pain
I can be your heroin
I can be cocaine
Street King
Street King
You linger within
