The blood that swims
these vieins is yours, as is the air
that fills our lungs. Your voice
is but a silent whisper as hollow words
slip off your tongue
This silly devil is haunting
me. She says ignore your company
to wipe off this empty smile and stay
silent for a while.
I'm sick of your mask
and sick of your voice. I wish
I could disappear, but these chains
leave me no choice.
You watch me struggle, trying to break away
I search the ground hunting
for the key,
Drop to the floor only to look
up at you smiling and I begin to shiver,
knowing on the inside I'm dieing.
My body is a fading shadow
with no wieght to hold
my head, no muscles to open my mouth,
I have no tears to shed.
The devil tells me to stand and look
you in the eye, bite on my tongue
and swallow back my cry."
