it spreads

Posted by anji13 , 11 November 2011 · 64 views

put my ear to my ribs
listen to the heartbeat
know there is life in me

put fingers to my throat
the pulse
the life

yet my eyes
stone cut
broken shale

the cracks sinking
low into my core
spreading

growing
consuming

on the porch
at 3 am
accepting the outside ice

snow
wind
still numb internally

cigarette in my lips
my only cure
beside my knife

i accept it
i breathe this life
i am

the world is not
is broken
excludes me

forgets we exist
forgets people hurt
forgets there is darkness to steal us away

leaves us chewed up and out
neglected with our wounds
building our cures

from blood
and pain and memory

the death spreads inside me
turning tissue
sinew to stone and steel

dusty bones
protect nothing

i am pain
i am the bloody memory
