What must happen to find reason on a ledge, peering into the abyss or seeking council in the poorly lit corners of the mind. Shaded, breeding contempt for love; pure darkness dwells in these thoughts.
thoughts of a heartstring
life and death a beat apart
balanced on a blade
A blade to target the tender point and teeter in the emotional sway. An opportunist, it strikes, I fill with heavy melancholy. I share this assault with my masochistic broken heart, then he too, is gone and I exhale.
exhale my last breath
I double over and down
I feel life give way
life gives way
and I am happy
