catch

I can’t breathe

its tight

the air is wringing my neck

I’m bleeding

my trachea is wounded

its exhausted

flesh is tightening digging its death into me

tightening around my neck

aroused by the blood

heightened by the heat

burn

So I decide to wrap myself up in cotton wool and let the cigarette burn

Watching it whilst it aches burning orange

Lighting flames, exhaling

Breathing monstrosity

Feeling a release but a burning inside

Choking on dry soot

Quenching senses that were never there

warm as my cotton tears


she says

 

Lenny Kravitz- The Difference Is Why

She says she wants to be a lover but she has no fear

she says she wants to be an inspiration but knows nowhere

she says she wants to love but can’t breathe anymore

she says she hates the way she smiles because her eyes crinkle

she says she can’t have what she wants because she doesn’t deserve

she says that her hopes and dreams are never at ease

she says she wants to believe and respire but she can’t

she doesn’t love herself enough

she doesn’t give herself enough

she doesn’t feed her soul

it cries like a banshee

tearing her monotonous face

hoping and dreaming and pleading everyday

but she gets none of it

she says where am I going wrong?

 

 


thought

Slipping through the night

I almost held my breath

wanted to blink twice

but I pushed and did it anyway

dont grab my hand

I want to be free

Jumping from the sky

into the sea


I

I can only make for myself the life I create

The pain I harbor follows me like a steel knife

And my feelings punish me for having emotions

If I cease them, they fail to breathe and let lie

I try to hope for tranquility

But hope doesn’t pursue truth

Truth hurts but sets me free
