i put this on
this music that does this
to me every time
when i feel like
i'm ripped apart where
seams never were
these words coat me
with stinging truth
of what
this really is
when i just want to
stop
completely
stop
being at all
i'm so tired
and worn away
by everything
and nothing in the
same breath
and i put this on
in the morning
before i have the chance
to wake up
this music
that does it to me
every time
this hairshirt
this cross i bear
with these thoughts
that cannot be
undone.
