Craving Attention

To get attention;
your focused attention,
I’d sell myself
on sale for
the price of
overpriced rainwater
from a river;
purified streams for
your sweet soul.
I’d taste smoke
on every part
of me, hating
me only sometimes.
Burn me alive
with a kiss
as a bad
idea over selfishness
use your words
as a weapon.
Any decision you
make, I’ll trust.
