tough words slay across the floor, ricocheted against the hard wood
and onto my face, rough syllables slice through my cheek, soak the ground with warm blood, cold veins take over frozen mind, hands shiver, step back, don’t come closer,
I can’t stand you, you mouth to me your better off, staying on the ground teeth clench, fingers into a fist I’m better off without you red anger under black holes, that were once my eyes, the curtain is closed don’t come near sharp teeth stare at me under a dammed smile, you should stay in hell, where you belong, comes closer throws darkened words,
they slip right out of his mouth, black ink against my skin, hand grabs, hand takes,
a dent in my waist, pressured with your hold, those fingertips that are like heated iron
I don’t need you in my life backs away, but the closeness is too deep, like handcuffs embroidered under my soul, bruises that whisper you should have never come
I made a mistake, I said yes, when I should have said none.
