Vulnerable

I could peel away the sky
and make it a permanent night for us all
Drape us in the warmth we could never have
until you decide you want more than me

Break away into a dream of death
for the first time I felt normal
If I could bleed in peace
just let out the poison inside

My skin rips easy and I smile
curled up like a wounded animal
I want something to take the pain away
but I’ll grit my teeth and let it overcome me

I cursed existence under a weak light
sickness washes over me again and again
Is real love just a release from feeling?
no more placebos to mollify the hopeless

The End
