Strangled

© Maggie Moor

You can tear the insides out of me
You can drag me to the bone
You can strip the flesh off my body
Lead me far from my only home

I don’t have the strength to fight you down
Don’t have what it takes to leave
All I want is to be inside you
Wrestle me and give me what you need

Strangled and strungout
Sprawled across the floor
Strange fascination wanting more

Master trickster kicking crawling beast
Kiss me sweet beneath my breast
Slice me, lick my wounds, whisper my dreams
Hissing, forcing, begging me undress
Looking for a bed to call my own
On my hands and knees screaming let go

I’m caught inside your eyes, your sultry lies
Strangled, strungout hang me out to dry

Strangled and strungout on the floor
Strange fascination wanting more

Nightbird sings, queen flowers sting
Your eyes your smile, beckoning- me
Man with your knife, King of Spades
Manipulate me, come round again
Cause you’re the only one who makes me feel sane

I would have washed your pain and made it mine
Would have held your hand sat by your side
Would have kissed your eyes if you should cry
You roll me over, leave me here to die

Strangled and strungout on the floor
Strange fascination wanting more
Strangled and strungout
Sprawled across the floor
Strange fascination wanting more
