Where did it all begin?


You should know more than skin was broken
when you confused terror with love,
pain with affection, panic telling
you to run with, "I'll do anything for you

--anything." If you're smart, you'll wonder
when you were taught this sick synthesis
was logical, consider the young heart
absorbs all that poses as devotion,
question when they first burrowed in,
these vectors of cutting and ruin.
