Written age 15.
My breath runs scared into the free air around.
My bones feel wrong, they creak, moan and dig into your side.
I hear the dead space in my head, and squeeze my sanguine eyes
To release a salty drop, a giveaway of my mistake.
My voice is caught in my hatched throat, bangs on the cell bars.
I forget who I am, I stretch my hands underneath me.
My head heavy as I try to lift my senses from the pillow
Yet i cant see anything but you, i hide inside.
My ribs curl outwards, to knife your chest, my ankles click and contract.
My voice comes out as a breathless scream, panic, a rush of air up to the ceiling.
Where I stare and watch myself slip away into the wooden beams.
I lose myself, you steal who I was.
Sweaty grasp fumble down my side, catching the skin
dragging across my stomach, then in my hair, pain stammers as
Wet slides from my closed eyes, I turn away to taste my pride.
I hesitantly open my eyes. I see you and I don't know you.
I never did.
Blank, staring, glazed eyes, smirk, dimples, strained neck.
I leave myself
And I watch myself die a little and I watch myself, just a child, let you win.
