you want me sweet by Vanessa Maki
you want me sweet
“I'll never glow the way that you glow”
- Fiona Apple
my mouth won’t ever have sugar / dripping out of it / that’ll never be me / & be honest / you just want me sweet / to make up for the sour / you just want me sweet / to make up for the bitter fucking taste / to make up for / the fact / that I can’t come off / as sugary sweet / not like you / & there I go again / setting you high / above me / all over again / as if you’ve become a skyscraper / while I’m a casual bystander / romanticizing the heights / that you reach / you tell me you understand / that you really understand / what sour is really like / not sure that I believe it / not at this time / so tell me darling / do you want me sweet for me? / or do you want me sweet for you?
