I’m not asking you to fall on a sword
to prove your affection but
once in awhile a little jealousy
just enough green to indicate
your heart’s really in this and
keeps is what you’re playing for.
So I’m not asking you to fall
on a sword but
once in awhile a knife
or small dagger would be enough
to press me to your lips
and stop the bleeding.
