If You Are Yet Cruel

If you still have the desire to consume all you see,
then say “I love you” as your parting words to me.
If you still have yet to learn that others have their own hearts,
their minds spinning doubletime to justify your arts,
do not hesitate to call me, or to send a winding text,
I am eagerly awaiting each and every coming wreck.
The things that do not kill me only make me more alive,
Each burr I pull from my flesh is a seed that,
somewhere,
thrives.
