Squarely sits
the flawed frame
around my desire

Unarmoured in my chest,
a freedom lies caged

Outside sits
the wanting love
that I reject

Temperamental walls
cry for collapse,
but I make it a game
to keep them steady

The constant lingering
of devilish lust
palpitates my heart

And I, for lack of need
find it impressive

Belittle me
and like a singularity
I will become dense
and invisible
and drop from your space

I will gravitate
inside my own world
(my owned world)
– my mass, not yours –
and use my volume
to prove your theory
is full of holes

– black holes –

that only carry purpose
like a stain
that can’t be washed
from its own fabric

The one who retracts within, rejects without.
