I caught you
walking out on wires again,
falling out my window
in a trick so beautiful
that your father wept
and your lover
held his breath.
You called it
an act of defiance
in that voice
that brings me to my knees
and begs me
to argue with you
when you know
that all I really want to do
is strip the pain
from your insides
and bed you
like war.
Prompt - fly

For Victoria

Thanks so much! I had started out with wings, not wires...and then realized it was the line in a play, so I changed it.
