25 (who?)
My pretty little masochist
Never learned the method of duck & run.
She stays where she is
Getting battered to pieces,
Hiding her scars & insisting it's fun.

My pretty little masochist
Won't let me protect her
From my self destructive ways.
She prefers to stay and fight for the mess of me.
Stubborn to the point
Of being irresistibly adorable,
She swears she's strong & not so easily broken
But we both worry when we see
The reflected pain of my own bad decisions,
Staring back at me.

My pretty little masochist
Is never ending patience & a world of understanding
As my broken heart orbits around her.
I pull her emotions along with mine
Like the moon pulls the tide
But she never complains
Of the pain that splashes on to her from me.

My pretty little masochist
Is dragon's logic & dragon's strength
Always protecting others fiercely.
But she told me once the secret
Of her dragon scales
Is construction paper & glitter glue
& never letting anyone close enough to notice
Her disguise,
Her lies,
No one except for me.
Because I am safe in her secret,
I can't hold her when she threatens to break,
I'm a cracked vase that her dragon tears would leak through
So she must preserve her glamour
To keep the rest of us together.

My pretty little masochist
Is typically
Laughter & smiles & song.
She holds me tight when she promises
This time we'll get it right
Though my history always got it wrong.

My pretty little masochist
Is butterfly wings against my skin,
Is the good to balance out my sin,
Is the love I always wanted but never believed I could win.
I won't be so dull as to post a definition of masochism here.

Dragon's tears are said to do many things, one is cure all illness. One is cure all sadness. If only I were a dragon and he were a whole vase.

The scary thing about getting all these new watchers is that I'm terrified of disappointing them now.

It was dark, it was sexy, it was serious, it was emotional, and it has so much focus. I like it. Interesting to me is how you came upon to write such a uncommon piece. Many things are best to leave unexplained.

I enjoy talking about my work. I'm more than happy to answer any questions you have. I'm not even really sure how I came up with this. A lot of it is very personal and I just came up with analogies to match certain situations in my life. You're description of the poem sounds a lot like the relationship it was based on. So I guess I got it right. lol

Thank you so much for the comment. I really love when people leave comments for me. It means a lot.
I keep reading this, and I must say it's a very good work to play along a very good arcade fire song I listen to daily. I would like to have known how to came up with this..I would like to know so many things, but little by little I guess we shall discover one another.

Comments are lovely. Compliments are heavenly.

My Body is a cage. Very good song. I don't understand why it feels so right with your work.
