When I see my love is hurt…

When I see my love is hurt
I want to blame myself for everything.
I want to tear down a jail
And build one that might hold me.
I want to set fire to the air
And drag bureaucrats by the hair.
I want to castrate misogynists
And feed their bits to hypocrites.
I want to hammer nails into water
And keep the current of my rage in place.
I want to hold that rage
In my hands like volcanic lava,
Like venomous snakes
I could hurl in their faces,
Like bombs of enlightenment
That explode at indictment.
When I see my love is hurt
I want to blame myself for everything.
I want to tear down a jail
And build one that might hold me.
I want to kiss her pain until I bleed.
I want to bring down the envious
With a gun made from a powerful book
And the curses of my most hateful look,
When I see my love is hurt.
