they want you to pound, reach harder
graft until it bleeds
till you bring that life in by the tongue and lash into this frost bitten world
they all want to see, they all want to see what they have you reduced to
to smile when they see you in your hovel
but they won’t live to reap the satisfaction
when you tell me that you feel me sliding down by your side
I do not surrender, that’s me accepting that this is you.
I’m sliding away, head first crashing into the waves.
See the only way to be free of you, is by being free from this vessel.
Shame is my body that lay with you, pretending I wasn’t hurting
when I was throbbing inside.
When you tell me that you feel me sliding down by your side
that’s you pushing my head firm against the ocean
and that’s my soul letting go.
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
