Petal-Stabbed Moon

The pain you make me feel
is like a flowery moon
with poison nectar
pouring from the craters
of its rocky petals.
The sticky nectar lands on me,
gluing my eyes shut,
trickling around my neck
and forming a syrupy noose.
which chokes me.
The poison nectar pours around me,
forming a golden casket,
entombing me,
leaving me to be freed.
