I’ve never even stopped to consider whether or not I’m wrong
Maybe it’s not decided undeniably that you’re worth as much as I’m paying.
Maybe you ain’t shit after all.
I’m historically bad at knowing for sure.
You just want a master, any master, and it doesn’t have to be me.
It’s the only role you’ll let me audition for over and over again.
I always pick the prettiest person who likes me the least which is why I know you probably think I’m some weirdo dumb ass loser because this little loopty loop that I do
when it is all I know how to.
Whenever you’ve slept in my presence I’ve sniffed your skin like a hunting dog.

and I set my alarms to remind me not to drag you with me
like a lucky rabbit’s foot that I amputated myself.
I don’t want anyone else to touch you but me.
And like you wonder and like you say
maybe I’m putting more value
I mistakenly thought that was something that I got to decide.
I can only laugh at the hopelessness of it all.
I’ve never even stopped to consider the fact that maybe
