Dipped in sugar my boyfriend was so sweet He had warm hugs And sweet words and damn those lips But I never felt that warmth on my cold skin Like the men I have been with My body could never accept a love with calories For a long time I liked my men sugarless. So when they hurt me with words that taste like nothing. They could slap back and say I know you like it!
He would say I like your body And I would want my skin to hug my bones even tighter. As his gasoline tongue slithered on my flamable skin I was one spark away from burning down to ashes. But I lived to realize, That I chose this for myself Because I could never call it my home That my mother built for me Of bones and flesh and blood and LOVE. So I chose to be buried under men Because it was warmer than my own body.
I didn't know anything else Than this glass of water I filled myself with. I would dip my fingers And swirl until I saw myself dissolving into it. Its when I met my boyfriend so harmless And he said he likes his woman sugarless. -Nebula
