Bride of Frankenstein

I’m a simple mosaic
but not simple
a patchwork of borrow and steal

I would give my heart
if it were mine to give
if you asked it of me

what should I wear
naked as the air
but this scrawl of stitches?

they’re the finest threads
but I don’t care
the crudest work would do

I’m your betrothed
the shadowed one
who wants the want in you
