i slide through notions
everflowing fires
stuck between theirs
jagged wires
thinking thoughts
you’d scream of
i tire your rhythm
for the thought
that i could find him
he dangles hatred
smears your voice 
kills you before you wake
i died in time
fought for seconds
a shallow wind
a neck
i once used to kiss
he pulls a knife
i pull my heart
he stabs with words
if only
he knew how hard
