please, step back.

old friend, do you see how i have stopped picking
broken hearts from the streets, i help no one.
i hope i mended you enough for you to never
think of anyone as your free balloon popper.
step back, there is nothing for you to take anymore. 

it is the feeling of their strange eyes
trailing down my body as if leaving trails of spice
but i, i have nothing to give, my body is harmless and empty.
step back, there is nothing you can take. 

i am not a thesaurus
do not come looking for
the synonyms of comfort
or words that make you feel
less empty, and a lil’ more full
step back, there is nothing for you to take.  

the girl next door does not love you
do not confuse her late night texts
as signs of envy, longness or love.
step back, there is nothing you can take.  

you can’t love something
you’ve only ever had a bite of,
try a slice, and then the whole.
things like that aren’t ever loved.
step back, there is nothing for you to take.  

you look how a canvas looks
just before it is splashed,
waiting, yearning, waiting,
to be loved, to be painted but,
step back, there is nothing left.

i have nothing for you to take, let me be.
i have nothing to give you, let me be.
