i don’t want to feel this way,
so i slept in your shoulder last night

i read an article about
how you should love someone with anxiety
and realized you do most of the things
they recommend not doing

you say you love me in excess
after you admit you lied to me
last week, last month, last year

hearing it is nice, but
i feel sick all the time and
it’s your fault

it feels like i sold my soul
to picture you naked with someone
or high in toronto

i know a child’s frustration,
trying to force wooden shapes
through impossible openings,
wanting a circle to be a square

you’re never sorry unless
i’m crying or my shoes are on
