you can’t take it all. i beg of you.

im just in pain.


there’s no break


it’s like time goes by 

and I think ill be ok

and I barely am..

just holding on..

and then you waltz in

in your dumb doubtless way

and pull that rug right out.

in a moment of perfection

for you

and near death for me/

and i back up slowly 

and stare at the floor 

where my bones

and my breath

and my life

are splayed out

in a vapid pool

of never had,

in a sea of toxic

never will,

and i watch

from the side

as my soul

gets crushed


a little:
