I want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes;

This dripping heart of mine can only feel,
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth,
so I only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that I care all too much.

In order to fix you up again,
I would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but I just haven’t figured out how.
i feel like if i describe this poem, i will just tell you what it's about. and i never want to do that. i love to hear what YOU guys think it's about, so tell me nd i'll note uyou what it actually is! fun!

and, once again, i don't think this title is very good. comment any suggestions you have!

I'm so glad that it carried out well- I'm always afraid it'll just be words with no emotion behind it
