want not to want

from prey​/​predator by Tracer Metula



that’s what they’ll say because they
are who they are
you take all the blame… you take all the blame
how could you plunge ever so
it’s pretty obvious
heaven turn a blind eye… heaven never mind

you once cut your teeth on making out
now your bite won’t fit inside your mouth

you made your bed unmaiden
lie burning, undercovered
lull asleep your rage… lull asleep your rage
but rising recognize that
calm doesn’t come… happiness is only lesser misery

hold out your hands all prayerfully, yeah
hold out your hands and close your eyes
who doesn’t care for a nice surprise?

bon bon? no way!
don’t peek already
you look and you die

should sugarplums disturb your slumbering
dance another way
want not to want and be glad that you have
