I looked at you roughly,
the way one looks at glass newly broken,
exasperated and wary.
"I am right here."
There was a shout in my whisper
and you stopped dead in your tracks.
You could feel the tiny wounds that bled
out into my voice,
flooding me with anger, teaching me regret.
There were questions on your lips,
Realization dawning
and breaking
and borrowing.
Love that was more rage
when I took you.
I still hate you as much as I want you.
