“Cup Runneth Over”

From the series titled Angsty Breakup Poems, part 1

I want you with me all the time 

But darling, please don’t whine

 

I adore your sweet little face 

But keep it in its place

 

I need you close to me 

While I run fast and free

 

Of course it is your job to keep up 

And try not to spill from your overflowing up

 

Both your fears and mine 

In that cup that you grip

Keep hold of its tightly 

It will break if you trip

 

That cup that’s filled with the weight of my presence 

I know it’s a lot

 

But once I forced it unto you 

I felt so weightless, untaught

 

Now just look how fast 

How freely I run

 

Don’t slow me down

We’ll stop when I’m done

 

As always, my love, it’s your job to keep up 

And please, try not to spill from that cup
