Tropes for Cannibals

Stay with me
within the parallels
i have set for us
the boundaries of relationship
the stereotypes
the atypical tropes
that have defined all
these years that we
have spent together
typecast into
a version of ourselves
not the best version
just one from the many
that suits me
but you fear if we persist
too far in this venture
we may get lost
at sea
without sail or wind
forced to cannibalize each other
for nourishment
ultimately ending up
as parts of
ourselves
on offer to other suitors
other cannibals.
