Fallen by Sydnie Kupferberg


“I like you”


Fallen below my feet

You’ve said what I always wanted

Choking on arrows

Drowning in drenches


Fallen down your drain

Swallowing spoons of sugar

Diving into cease

You’re indulging me in what has to end


Imprinting your affection on my skin

Leaning into layers of ice


You’re going to leave me frozen


Fallen into your palms

Hugging your happiness,

Making it mine


Loosing myself for yourself

Yet you’re squeezing me


So just crush me already

Let me know you never meant it
