Darkness pervaded claustrophobic breadth.
Trembling hand raised before bated breath.
“You don’t have to do this.” cries a voice.
Drowned before grating discordant noise –
Do you cry out in your sleep?
All my feelings exposed.
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just can’t function no more?
He watches reaching hand in pallid light
Cold steel cools.
Final thoughts before bewitching sight.
The music stops and only silence ensues,
and mono-syllabic cry
For curling finger each hurried step pursues.
Love. Love will tear us apart.
