spilled

i spilled myself
across the cobblestones
in front of her
hoping
that somewhere
in the messy metaphors
she would find
something pretty

she dipped her finger
in my everything
swirling the colors
before licking
her finger
with an
expression of
curious wonderment

her eyebrow arched
as she looked at me
with a new understanding
written across
her beautiful face
smirking, she reached forward
to tug the leash
hanging around my throat
