I Want You

by Jean Jones

to drain all the fluids
out of my body,
like a vampire draining her
victim dry, sucking all blood out
until the victim
is completely dried up…

Do that to me,
drain me,
suck me out completely
until I can't say No
to you anymore…

Drain me, suck me
until all I want to do
is surrender
before dying,
before all my water
gets sucked up
into your mouth,
and I can never say
No to you, ever—
