[Poetry] Untitled

Once again, I sold my soul for love

Hoping it would be the last time
I would play Alice
Falling down the mysterious rabbit hole

How many times can a soul be sold?
I asked
He laughed
And handed me the paperwork

Here I am again
Negotiating a deal
Signing my name in fresh blood
Losing who I am for the housewife I would become

Again, all in the name of love


*I wrote this poem in about 20 seconds. Not thinking, not brainstorming; just writing.
