find the cold hollow inside. Hang on. Sink your claws in strong. Dull the pain and r u n
Open doors are invitations
Haunting curses, lamentations
Seal the entrance, bar the wound
Make your heart a gravel tomb.
What, of course, the acid burns my chest
The ice cubes melt my rest
I feel sick and dark instead
Colors blur my blood-beat, dead
The shadows bleed deep in my veins
I know now why my heartbeat strains
But will you move along someday
When someone else is as bright as me?
As loud, as eager, as strange and chaotic
Why stay here when others are c a l l i n g ?
please come safely, quietly home
please still the shrieking in your bones
let me hold your pain and fire, let me feel the lightning in your eyes
allow my heart to bleed
for what’s h u r t i n g y o u i n s i d e
Give me scars that paint my flesh
Give me wounds and stitches blessed
With stories, pasts and livelihood
Carve the ivory of me
Slick the canvas with oil and dreams
Cut in me new memories
Make me more than these injuries
What a perfect way to disappear
Just heap the anger in
It buries everything human
And leaves you utterly hidden.
