Wrap your hands,
Around my neck,

Force me,
Down to my knees,

Mush my mouth,
Against concrete.

Tell me that you love me,

Push me,
Make me fall.

Bruise me as I bawl,
Just love me.

Hurt me,
Endanger me.

Tie me up,
Throw me down.

Just hurt me,

I can't breathe.
I'm weird.....I know. W/e though<3

May I say, I love your usage of bold/italics. As I read it, italics come out as a cry, a whisper, a whimper, etc. while bolded phrases are commands, or rise in desperation. It really creates an interesting effect, especially with the play of normal font that makes sure the lines keep that emphasis. (Because if it was all italic/bold, it wouldn’t really stand out or make a difference, you know?) And then the climax of the poem: “I can’t breathe” with both font types? Nice planning there.
Anyways, this is a great display of those masochistic-esque emotions that involve love & lust. The contradictions are painfully understandable—relatable, on one level or another, for most of us. The interesting thing about this poem is that it can really be interpreted differently. When taken literally, this is a rather dark poem with some self-abusive themes. However, with that said, the rawness of the emotion is almost alarming, and I can't help but take this as something inward...physical pain manifested from an emotion.

I really love the mixture of emotion: the hurt, the lust, the need, the desperation, the willingness, the reluctance. The poison in the words, the seduction. Such a boiling kettle of contradictions. So endlessly deep. If you read and read it over and read it over again you find another meaning and piece of soul.
"I can't breathe." You're last line is beautifully powerful. It encompasses all of the emotions poured out. The pressure, and yet the hope.
I also like the originality of the variations of italic, bold, and small. It adds a lot of stress to some things and naturally makes you dig deep with the smaller print. Thinking, "I gotta read the smaller lines, too," and you really analyze things.
This is going to sound wierd, but I think on the lines, "Bruise me as I bawl, Just love me." I think you should make the "Just love me" the line in bold, because I find it to be almost the most striking part of the poem. But then again, I don't know if you have any rhyme or reason to the differences in text. If you do, this is simply my opinion given in all due respect.
All of the lines in the poem are almost perfectly executed. Not too much repetition, all with significant worth, etc.
Thanks for the intriguing read.

Oh my goodness, thank you:heart:

And for the bolding and such...'I love you' isn't bolded because it's like a plead to be accepted..Not a command. I tried it the other way before posting it a it didn't look right to me..Or it didn't match what I felt personally.<3
