Blood Let

Blood and chocolate
vodka and coke
running home on break-time
enough time for a grope
sneaking in my single
laughing undercover
living on borrowed
someone elses’ sugar
It was fun while it lasted
nothing is scot-free
jealousy took her hostage
She held it against me
letters airmailed later
to explain the unexplained
severed ties and scored wrists
chocolate smears but blood stains
