Rest Assured

I’ll never come to you for anything;
Know that I’d rather shred my knees with a grater,
Than kneel down in front of you.
Know that I’d rather swim across oceans,
Than rebuild the bridge I burnt.
Know that I’d rather lick blazing flames,
Then let your name pass my lips.
Know that I’d rather nightmares stain my sleep,
Than have another dream about you.
Know that I’d rather listen to dial tones as lullabies,
Than pick up the phone to call you.
Know that I’d rather julienne my own heart,
Than hand it to you again, whole.
