The Gospel of Love According to John
by Therese Masotta
1 YOU were miserable before you met me,
but you can be repaired, my love.
2 Remember with joy how I saved you from
knife’s edge—I know you are only
so beautiful when you are happy.
3 Let’s fuck again; God doesn’t have
to know about this one.
4 Think not on the hypocrisy you claim
to see in me.
5 Let’s fuck again, and you won’t notice
anymore, my love.
6 Ask not why you cannot leave, for you
forget the scripture I taught you when
we first met.
7 I am better to you than God will ever be
because I saved you, baby.
8 So, on your knees now, and repeat this
prayer after me:
I will not ever leave
Because I am a good person.
9 My love, you are my love,
and that is all you need to be.
