The Hanged Man

It comes down to this:
I can’t die in your world-
I would rather live
in my own
and alone with a bed that
stubbornly stays empty on one side
and arms only ever full of poetry books
and lips that are too covered in
classic red lipstick to even care that
they aren’t getting kissed-
because I could have
contorted and conformed
and you still might not have wanted me.
