Gathering evil intentions

Hell hath no fury

for 

what will people say

behind your back?

Consent.

Safe words.

He said.

She said.

You’re high on a pedestal

Scorned lovers

can be vicious,

Even if they’re crazy.

It’s not the falling off

the tall pillar that hurts,

it’s the sudden stop

at the

end.
