i am gutting myself (untitled)Mature

I am gutting myself - publicly - 
not allowing for shadows to distort the true gruesome fashion
with which I will cut myself apart, waiting for the hushed awe
of the crowd, waiting for the rush of adrenaline
as my body crumples to meet the earth in a violent, harsh embrace.
I am nothing but shades of sin cast in light,
shadows distorting on walls and floors and hearts
like secrets only half told and only half remembered.
I welcome the darkness more than I welcome the light.

The End
