Tonight's Poet Corner: One Lovesick Crazy

One Lovesick Crazy
by Belinda Roddie

I folded you up like a Valentine's Day
card and slipped you into my back pocket
to keep you dry
to keep you safe
to tuck you into a new silver locket

I gobbled you up like a bag of candy
all in the shape of a crooked heart
of my own crooked heart
of my own toxic heart
and you're part of my system forever

Roses are dead and
violets are cruel
Don't ever do to me
what I'm doing to you
