If I knew what love really felt like,
I wouldn’t have tried to fill the void with senseless moments
and futile people.
I wouldn’t have let hollow monsters between
my very delicate valley.
Fighting for pleasure,
but finding yawns.
Letting people touch places I wish were untouched,
or let fluids drain out of me like trying to fill the holes of a drainer with warm water.
Nobody likes warm water.
I wouldn’t have wasted my most intimate moments
with people who cared more of my name
than the hole they were pounding into.
