collared

i really should be way beyond this now
the flutter in the heart
the crazy mix of anticipation and fear
every time we speak i feel like
i’ve been lifted high, then flung
against barbed wire
every word a sharp bit of steel
biting my flesh
bringing forth bright drops of blood
blood so red and hot it feels like
fire on the soul
i can’t wear your armor
it’s far too heavy
it oppresses me with judgment
still you haunt me
i can’t pretend
i’ve taken off that collar yet
