Step On Up

by Chelsea Blundon

Listen to the whispering in your ear
at the top of my lungs
“I will save you, dear”
and “come with me,
      lay with me”
Though you should know it can’t be true
why not let me stifle the light in you?
While you’re telling me
you never wanted this
That’s okay
as long as they’re pretending that they wanted this.

The world is dying for a little love.
