“Ha!” – I laugh in the monsters face
You know I cannot love quietly!
Every night I’ll bleed myself out
Then wake up, with the memory of what’s happened
washed away quickly, like a dream
That keeps coming back
Nothing you could do to me
that I wouldn’t do to myself?
as I let go of the railings keeping me afloat
waiting for a storm
to come and sweep me out to sea
A sweet, but poisonous remedy
