Sticks and stones

Break these bones

Falling all around me.

Scars that bleed,

Tears that fall like rain.

Follow me

Down the rabbit hole,

Until you are out of breath.

Swept up in the coat tails of desire

I drown away these sorrows.

Just one more


Through the heart.

It’s not too late

To save me;


Scabbed over ruins

Of this so called body.

Tear me down,

Take my hand help me up.

I’ve learned to run

Far before I’ve learned to crawl.

I’m heading down this shadowed path

A fortune teller tells of no fortune.

Gun shots and sirens

Ring through windowless buildings

Broken and forgotten.

I am silent,

I am forgotten.
