Is an anger, all consuming, destructive.
Slow, the flames eat me;
Thoughts, feelings, words.
Sealed, my lips and eyes
Look, unlook at this world
Far and wide.
Blue, blue, so much blue
Lingering in that absolute dark
Quivering in that corner
Away from tongues that bark.
Fingers trace an unknown body
My own flesh and bones.
What is mine, what is mine?
This next breath, my anxiety, my memories
The love I cage in my chest
My nails or hair or maybe sweat
If nothing, my mistakes and regrets.
