Poetry – Words like Knives

I use words like knives
and slice up your heart,
but you must know I love you.

I disappear to dark days
and leave you stranded here,
but your must know I need you.

I have bruises under my skin
and you must not touch them,
but you must know I feel you.

I hide behind veils
that you cannot unwind,
but you must know I want you.

I’ve killed all those feelings
and thrown away chances,
I must know I’ve lost you.
