a nice girl [poem]

I’m a nice girl
I don’t seem to have
a single mean bone in my body
when someone upsets me
I release my anger
channel my mind away from
violent thoughts and revenge
I don’t do vicious
except
when I write
I want my words to make you ache
chapters tearing open your heart
until you can only feel what I give you
anguish and despair
I want you
bleeding wreckage on the floor
next to the plot of unexpected betrayal
I derive pleasure
from the control a good story can gain
over a reckless reader’s soul
but
I’m a nice girl
I promise
