Dull words from a sharp tongue
That I once begged to run its edge over my body
Cut me open
And lay me bare

Quick glances from a slow dancer
What I would have given for a gaze
Subtle but lingering
Like the peppermint on your lips

But I am a stalwart knight within a stone citadel
Reinforced and fortified
Against your innocuous contradictions
That would poison my soul
Having a lot of problems as of late.
Oops.

I'm sorry that you are experiencing problems. You've definitely created something beautiful out of a bad situation. There is something so breathtaking about creating something out of heartache and trouble that leaves the artwork feeling so raw and exposed. You did a wonderful job with this poem!
