i want to shake you. warn you.
get out while you can. he’s lying.
he will never choose you. never love you.
he will take and take until you’re a
lifeless husk and you blow away
in a gust of wind.
what could i possibly say to you?
he will never change for you,
love you, support you.
he can’t function on his own.
he will assault you.
he won’t take no for an answer.
i want to scream this at you.
shake you. make you hear me.
but i know you’d just scoff
“he isn’t like that” and continue.
after all, we all know
that when you’re wearing
rose colored glasses,
just look like flags.
