You and the dark forest

Today I'll throw myself in front of you

Upon the ground

Among the leaves

With white arms extended

 

And then I'll weep

Exposing my tears for you

To consume

 

That's what you want from me after all

Isn't it?

 

To lay myself low before you

In sorrow and humiliation

You get your kicks from tricks

Like this

 

But beware

Because as you bend down

To drink from my eyes

I shall rise up

And step over you

Leaving you and your cruelty

Within the shadows and silhouettes

Of this dark forest

To receive love, you have to give it...

I like how you depart with far greater respect than that which was exhibited by the other person. You simply leave but the other actively denigrates. Very nice contrast. I am too inherently lazy to be vindictive: that smacks of effort. :)
