Do not fall in love with a poet (A concept) or poetry is passion
We are accustomed to making sweet honey phrases drip into the mouths of a readers.
We'll take the curves of your body and make you believe they are like the ocean, beautiful and dangerous.
We will teach you how to suck the marrow from our fingers as you gasp and moan for our metaphors.
You will dig your nails into our resilience leaving marks redder than the ones the pen leaves on our mistakes
Know that the words I give you are rotten bouquets dipped in gold.
They're only beautiful for a moment,
And soon they will be forgotten,
Much like your love for a poet.
