Farewell self

It’s me
It’s me. 
I’m the one I need to leave

I had a dream, a choking-scream
It signified someone crippling me
Holding me back, smothering
Someone damaging,
pain-inducing. 

It’s me
It’s me I can almost hear the scream
Why am I crippling myself 

LET ME GO PLEASE

Decisions

Tear the bones out of my chest

Break them apart, bury the rest 

Fill my veins with golden ink

And steal the thoughts I’ve dared to think. 
As my words recline in troubled times

Do I more hurriedly digress?

Am I entombed in callous wounds

The gnashing flesh of my final test?
