Words full of shrapnel,
Explode, rupture, ripping and gashing
all through inner being.
Heart full of holes, bruised & barely beating,
Stomach twisted, wrenching and disintegrating,
Brain on fire, charred, splitting!
Lungs, collapsing, gasping for air, next breath.
Fatigue, weakness, anxiety and restlessness!
Why come into my life, to tear me apart!
Strong, independent, caring and Free, I didn’t need,
nor did I want a special person in my life,
I was doing just fine alone!
Now, My soul is in despair sad, mangled
Pureness of light, gashed open filling up
suffocating in my own blood!
From the inside out!
