The Gift

I saw you on his bed
convulsing and screaming
like an exorcism
and you’ll have to get him something else for Christmas
because nothing compares to this
the romanticisation of torture
is something with which I’ve become familiar
yet this seems foreign
selling your soul to feel a little less lonesome
how was it for you?
