ghost boi
jenakajoffer

it's not my fault
 1
he put a fire in my heavy
 2
metal heart, he sent me a picture
 3
wearing a high visibility vest
 4
he wore a hardhat he was smiling
 5
he said that's what I do to him
 6
 
 
he was neon in the yard
 7
it was only sunrise, his hands
 8
were reaching he was
 9
already dirty
 10
he was beaming at the bottom
 11
of the quarry, I wanted to
 12
throw him down in the dirt
 13
 
 
he said things
 14
he said nice things to me
 15
he was boyish
 16
like a boy
 17
he wanted to play games with me
 18
he wanted to hopscotch
 19
to the moon with me backward
 20
 
 
he said let’s summon demons
 21
my demons in the bedroom
 22
I said when
 23
he said oui
 24
I said yes yes
 25
he said you are
 26
a  d  o  r  a  b  l  e
 27
 
 
he was hard
 28
hard to resist, I dismissed it
 29
he was persistent
 30
I showed him my hands
 31
the hands reaching
 32
out of the flames
 33
 
 
it's not that he said things
 34
that he said nice things to me
 35
it's not that I was a girl
 36
in love with a boy, a boy who
 37
did nice things for me
 38
 
 
it's that I was coming
 39
I was coming out at the seams
 40
I was on fire, I panicked
 41
there were ants crawling out
 42
he didn't say a thing
 43
he left me burning, my heart
 44
was hurting he knew
 45
he knew just how to ruin me
 46
 
 
and I found it obvious
 47
it was obvious to me
 48
it was obvious he was into me.
