Baby I’m just your broken crown,
I split in two and fell off your head.
My back hurts, he said
And I gave him my spine.
We dented the floor when we moved the bed,
I said eventually you’ll love me and we’ll find it under here
Because part of me died and got caught against the radiator and her things
You didn’t know me yet, he said.
I am your promises bled out on the floor,
Hide me in the boards and if I still love you tomorrow
I won’t scratch my way out.
I said baby I’m your broken crown
So he outlined my collar bones
And pushed his way in.
