Your Love Has Reduced Me To Nothing

 Jairo Alzate
Jairo Alzate

i have let you
seduce
me
reduce
me
to a shell of a girl
love me harder
make me numb to
the pain
inflicted with every touch of your hand

there is nothing left of
me
but your handprints on my back and your lips on my neck
traces of encounters that have come to define me
to rob me of my sense of self
slowly melting into how you want me,
when you want me

this is not love but
masochism
aching for your affection that
becomes my pain Thought Catalog Logo Mark
