So You Say (Twiglet)

Prompt:  “So you say”

You love me

So you say

But only when

Desperate, I beg

Some semblance

True warmth, heart-

Deep affection…


You dole out


Pale pittance

Flat lackluster phrase

‘Mid turned-away gaze…

Fool, I was hoping

You were rescue, not

Cruel master, hands’

Tight rein choking

Harsh-high expectations

‘Love’—so you say

If all goes your way


Bonfire of passion

Drew me to your bed

‘Twas the devil’s 

Flaming lair instead
