yes you with the black words.
would you care to hold this corner
deep in my chest?
yes I know the blood flows strangely
and doctors make it look so easy
but if it isn't too much trouble
I must ask you take a piece
and just tear it straight out.
it needn't be clean
no one will care.
pardon me my friend
if you could take a firm hold of my hand
just pull straight towards you
dont mind the noise
ive cut down the dotted lines
sliced the seams
so such imperfect skin should slide right off.
use it as a diary
for to the knowing eye
it's a novel.
words have faded and people fallen
so if you miss some around the edges
no one will notice.
sorry to bother you my dear
but i believe when i left him
i made the biggest mistake
because at least he wanted me happy.
you're too busy stabbing me
between protruding ribs to even notice
most dangerous of all
i stopped crying.
if i could paint today
i would paint in wisps of changing blue
but that would immortalize you
maybe ill paint the bathtub red.
