Bait

i’m a fish trying not to get caught
a kid saying no to candy

you bait me with words:
the small joke we used to laugh about
my favorite tv show, your dog’s bad state
our favorite post-make out food

when we were together
it was like a constant state of war
and now, i know that not being with you
feels exactly the same way
