sullying love’s good name 

I will not be your side-attraction

pulled out for just a day or

maybe two.

I will neither put a face to your dirtiest fantasies 

nor reign in your raging lusts; tame them to a whisper,

only to then be stuffed back into the dense darkness 

to fight for breathing space

with the skeletons in your closet.

No, you’re not allowed 

to live out your desires with me

not for two hours

not for four.

you shamelessly offer to me

assets you’ve vowed to another

while she crows & boasts

in teemingly public places,

blissfully unaware of your straying eyes,

your hungry tongue

and your fickle fidelity.
